Thank for inputs.

Once in place with correct buttons year, is there a different look between 68 and 69 ?

The length of the knob shafts . 69s are longer. Mike(from NM) who owned a dealer installed 69  8 track radio in his 68 GT500KR could never document it so when Tim Lea restored the car I bought the AM 8 track and put it in my 69 428SCJ Mach1 as it came from the factory with one. I measured the shafts and 68s are shorter hence you can put a 69 in a 68 but not vice versa(?). Faces are the same as far as I know when it comes to AM as I got both 68 and 69 AM radios in my cabinet. Gary
