Sarcasm?  Did the early cars have FM?

I didn't catch that until now.

Yup.  Sarcasm.  No FM on the early Zs.  At that time in history, there were plenty of radio stations broadcasting in FM, just not many car radios able to listen.  FM was mostly enjoyed on the home stereo receiver.  Life was simpler in those AM radio days.

In Norway this old analog radio will soon (2017) receive nothing but static. Analog AM & FM are being phased out. Relic of the past.

They say this won't happen in the USA but many stations here have already converted over to digital. They're also broadcasting in analog simultaneously.

But someday.....

It will happen because the government wants the band width for other things. That is how we got digital broadcast tv. They sold the old TV frequencies to companies for other uses...

I like simple, take me back to the 80s. 

What does SW stand for on the volume/tone knob?  I tried google and it comes back "subwoofer" LOL.

Is it just SWITCH?

 

SW = On/Off switch on that three function radio control knob.  Car radio controls were much more user friendly, easy to find while weaving through traffic, and within reach back then.  The driver didn't need to take eyes off the road or have tiny fingers to change stations or adjust volume like we do with current car entertainment systems.  Progress?  I'm not sure.

And we got screwed!  Comcast charges $5 a month for Broadcast fees.  They told me that was payment to the movie studios, which they own, Universal Studios.

We'll get it again on the radios.  I have a Bluetooth speaker I put in my Zs and use iHeart on my phone on long drives but nothing sounds sweeter than my 2.4 with the aluminum flywheel and MSA exhaust, IMHO.  That Abarth system somebody posted the other day sounded good too.

The early Hitachi TM-1081ZA(S) and TM-1081ZB(S) radios had the controls on the same side in both markets (LHD and RHD) HLS30 and HS30.

The Fairlady Z-L's appears to have got an 8-track radio, where as the Fairlady Z-S got a similar radio to export markets but it was a bit more simple in that it didn't have the auto-tune feature and no antenna switch. Same faceplate design. 

More info here.

That 30,101 was reserve not met. No-sale.

This is at least the third time it's been listed, and one of the previous times it was listed, it hit 58K and was no-sale due to reserve not met.

S30-00806 just sold for $80K + AUD which is approx. $57K USD at today's rate.
 

I agree, it has a lot of value. I was surprised it didn't sell @ $58k though. He might find a buyer willing to go more but it will have to be at one of the big auction houses. I don't think it's going to happen on Ebay...

And it has the "original AM/FM radio".  New paint can hide a multitude of automotive indescretions acquired over 46 years.

My first z had been painted right before I bought it.  It was a '71 that I bought in 1977 from a dealer.  He had taped over the needed bodywork instead of fixing it correctly.  I later fixed that myself.  For any other car I would have been mad at that guy but I so loved and enjoyed the car I didn't care.
