Welcome to my auction for this lovely example of a


Pye 2644 Classic Car Radio - in  PERFECT working order


It dates from the late 60's/early 70's and has the following features :-

** Upgraded to connect an ipod/mp3 player - complete with long connecting lead 

(Please note the ipod in the photo's is NOT included in the auction)

** Five pushbutton model  - Off, LW,MW, U (FM) and AFC (noise reduction)

** 87 - 104 MHz FM (U) band

** 200 - 500 metres Medium wave band

** 1150 - 1900 metres  Long wave band

** Powerful and attractive fully transistorised set

** Polished silver frontplate with chrome trim surround 

** Working station dial illumination

** Chromed rotary volume/tone and tuning controls 

** Crystal clear sensitive reception on all bands with plenty of volume

** All leads are present with inline fuseholder & fuse fitted

** Fully checked and left on test for hours - worked perfectly on all bands 

** 12 Volt Negative or Positive Earth  (Changeover switch on side of set) 

** Complete and ready to install and enjoy in your classic car **

This very rare radio has been fitted with a lead allowing you to play your digital music files from your iPod or mp3 player directly through the radio - the connecting lead is almost 2 metres long, which is ample for most installations - and it is fitted with a standard 3.5mm jack plug which is compatible with all ipod/mp3 players.

It is in lovely condition for its age, and would not look out of place in the fascia of any classic car - it is in very nice order considering it is around 45 years old, with only some minor marks to the trimplate and knobs, however you do have to be very close up to see them. This radio is very compact and will therefore fit cars where space behind the dash it at a premium, such as Lotus Elan etc (the radio measures 176x120x50mm) 

It sounds just as good as it looks too -  I have had this on test over many hours using a Radiomobile speaker and it gave excellent performance over all bandwidths. All the pushbuttons and controls operate perfectly without any crackles or notchiness.  This set packs quite a punch and will easily drive a pair of speakers if you so wish. (Remember these are mono sets though, not stereo) You will certainly not be dissapointed with its performance, it is a very sensitive and powerful radio which tuned in plenty of local and national stations on both AM and FM. It also sounded terrific when I connected my ipod to it 

These AM and FM sets were fitted to many cars as an aftermarket accessory, and were very expensive when new...much more than the MW and LW only sets. As it is dual polarity, it is suitable for installation in any 12 volt classic car - making these radios quite sought after, especially so with the iPod/mp3 lead fitted - take a look at the large sized photo's and judge the condition for yourself - it would look super back in a fascia of a period classic car

Perhaps now is the time to give your beloved classic car a real period treat ready for this seasons shows and drives ?

A really nice, attractive and powerful AM/FM radio, which sounds fabulous - dont miss this one.

Take a look at my other items, I have listed a Radiomobile vintage speaker with a 'Pye' chromed grille, which would compliment this radio perfectly

Please note the radio will be very well packaged to protect it fully and sent to you by Recorded Delivery at the very least......No silly over-inflated postage charges either - you pay exactly what I pay at the Post Office

Overseas bidders - please contact me via ebay for a tracked courier shipping quote - again, you pay only what the couriers charge me. (I only use couriers that offer a fully tracked service from door to door)

Low start price with no reserve, so good luck if you decide to bid.

** Please remember that the ipod in the photo's is NOT included in the auction  **

Also, take a look at my seller feedback & view my returns policy - I hope it assures you that you can bid with confidence from someone who takes ebay extremely seriously and strives to deliver great service.

Any questions?......... please just ask.
