I purchased an AM Radio for my 67 Chevelle, FM,s are to high in price.
Can anyone tell me what would be the best way to go in adding some type of FM system that would work without alot of Cost and trouble.?

There used to be FM converters for AM radios. The AM radio would be tuned to a certain frequency and then the FM converter would be used to select the station. It hooked up so that the converter got the signal from the antenna and sent its output to the AM radio. They seemed to work OK, but I have not seen one in a long time. Maybe Radio Shack or eBay.

I just put away the Chevelle AM and installed a cheap aftermarket AM/FM. Gives me the news and plays some songs. I don't need the best system out there and didn't cut up the dash doing it.

Thanks 6t7
On what title did you look under, I,m always looking under Chevelle, Maybe Audio etc. Some times it,s really picky on the title you put.
Thanks again, will be looking and bidding..

wayne, i'm using both of mine.
search under "fm converter" on ebay.
one vintage radio repairman recommends the audiovox converters.
he doesn't recommend the aftermarket "replacing the guts" method for older radios.
