There are loads of nice 70s radios on ebay (classic 5 button motorola etc)but cant find anything on the net about original SAAB radios for the 96.

Generally they were located under the dashboard on the drivers side below the light switch. My 1969 V4-DeLuxe was supplied with a Motorola and a roof arial installed by the dealer. There were several makes available at the time - Phillips, Radiomobile, Blaupunkt. LW & MW were the choices of station bands. I don't know when FM car radios became available.
