1971: This model year saw visual changes only in the color schemes of the radio dials. To match the new color of Chevelle instrumentation, the radios were produced with white lettering/numbering and with blue "tint bands" on the lenses. All 1971-1972 model year radio equipment illuminates pale blue in the dark as opposed to the earlier green.



1971 AM PUSHBUTTON RADIO

Delco model number: 11APB1

The AM pushbutton radios area exactly the same (except for electronic revisions) as 1970 units, but have the different white dial numbering and the blue "tint-band" instead of green.





1971 AM/FM (mono) PUSHBUTTON RADIO

Delco model number: 11AFP1

The AM/FM radios (FM mono, not stereo) are visually the same as the 1969-1970 units with the exception of the change to white numbering on the internal dial and blue "tint bands" on the lens.






1971 AM/FM (stereo) PUSHBUTTON RADIO

Delco model number: 11AFM1

The 1971 AM/FM-stereo radios continued using the same design of the previous model year (an amber colored stereo indicator light on the upper right corner and the word Stereo printed between the "104" and "108" on the FM dial band), but with the exception of all numbers/lettering printed in white and blue "tint bands" on the dial lens.






1971 AM RADIO & 8-TRACK PLAYER

Delco model number: 11APBT1

The combination AM radio and 8-track tape player used the previous model year design of the dial that doubles as a tape cartridge door, round amber stereo indicator light and upper pushbuttons. The numbering and lettering however, were changed to white and the upper corners of the dial lens now had the blue "tint bands".









1971 AM/FM (stereo) & 8-TRACK PLAYER

Delco model number: 11AFMT1

The combination AM/FM-stereo radio and 8-track tape player used the previous model year's design of a dial that doubles as the tape door and CHEVROLET printed below the buttons. Three of the pusbutton presets serve double-duty as AM, FM and EJECT buttons. Just like the AM/8's, there is an amber colored stereo indicator on the upper left side of the lens, but in addition there is also an amber colored FM indicator on the upper right side of the lens. The "tint-bands" in the upper corners were changed to blue and the the numbering and lettering were changed to white for this model year.
