This '69 and the '70 both have no radio antenna. That's a easy way to tell the '69 and '70 apart. :o

I guess it was a delete option on fleet cars?

Were Ford Custom's only sold as fleet vehicles?

Only the very last versions (1975 USA, Canada 75-77). Very few before that were sold to private buyers. The base price for the Galaxie was just $100 more, was better appointed and had more options.

My grandmother thought it distracted the driver and did not want my grandfather to have a radio in his cars (She didn't drive). My dad convinced him on his last car to get the radio and tell her that it was standard. I found the paperwork for that car, a 1967 Bel Air. The radio was an option listed on the invoice.

That's what Issigonis thought, so he didn't allow a radio in the Mini. You couldn't even install it as an option.

my grandfather had a radio in his last 2 cars ( a 1986 Mercury Lynx and the 1990 Tempo that became mine later ) but don't even remember him turning it on ( and i was surprised the radio actually did worked when i got the Tempo ) , did not in the previous one ( a 1987 Mercury Topaz without any option )

One day the radio was hungry and decided to turn my cassette into his lunch, i couldn't get the radio working because the cassete was still inside, couldn't get the cassette playing either.... most boring ride ever ( even if it was a short one )
