    Where can I send my radio out of my 67 Ranchero for repair? It comes on but can't pick up the stations.

    There are plenty of places if you google am fm radio conversion that can update your am so you can listen to something besides static.

    Have you tried running a new antenna? It could just be something as simple as that and not necessarily the radio.

    Sad news to report

    All:

    Sad to report, LD (apparently the main "guy" of Ray's) passed away December 2nd, 2013. The site links you to the obit, but evidently no one will be continuing the business.

    Sad to hear Larry passed away, Must have been sudden. He was a good dude...He assembled several Torino AM FM radios for me that were absolutely toasted, made them like new..

    Here is another place I have used with excellent results

    Could you elaborate on "comes on but can't pick up the stations"? Do you get any noise at all from the speaker, or do you just mean the light works? Are you sure the speaker works and is hooked up? Can you get any static or noise by playing with the volume and tone controls?
