Absolutely Gorgeous! :cool: :bowtie:

Are you missing a piece of aluminum trim around the radio?
I only mention it because my 80 Berlinetta has a trim piece there and I think it would look great with the factory radio.

Wasn't that an 80/81 only thing?

For what it's worth, my Berlinetta was rocking an 8-track when I got it. Still looking for someone to get it going :(

My 79 berlinetta does not have the radio trim, never looks to have had it, but the original radio was long gone when i got the car and they had an aftermarket 2 post in it by the looks of it. But my 80 berlinetta does have the trim.


Best picture i have showing the radio.

Honestly... I don't know.
I haven't seen enough 79 Berlinetta models with an intact factory interior to notice that detail.

My 80 camaro rs originally had a black radio bezel and I have been trying to find one with no luck seems.

Well Mark, welcome back.

Thanks Damon! Have missed this crowd. :) Been a crazy summer with work, moving my mom from Maine to NC and acquiring a new daily driver. I had to go to San Antonio, TX to get it and drive it back..:p

Here's the new beast.. (Sorry for the thread jack :innocent: )

As far as I know the 79 year model did NOT have a radio trim option. I have a dealer brochure and it has no mention of it in the radio options area. To my knowledge the radio has never been removed, as per the original owner. I DO have a removable audio set-up so that I can play my CD's, MP3's, Etc on a Kenwood head unit. It sit's over the rear hump between the rear seats. I'll have to take the time to take pix and do a write-up of how I made it in case anyone else might want to try something similar. It's completely removable so it show's no signs of being there after it's taken out.

mines a berlinetta, but im going Z28 because of the more well known and "sportier" looks. plus i think the 79 decals are sweet!


I agree 79 has the best looking decals by far.
