Can anyone identify the year of manufacture of this original AM-FM radio?

Model No. 7302721

Serial No. 21FMR 0544

It's installed in my 1970 coupe but I'm wondering if it actually is the original '70 radio.  Thanks!

That part # first appeared in 1968, and was used in Corvettes. The basic radio head itself was also used for several other years under the same AND different part numbers. It's entirely possible it is original to the car.

Thank you very much for your reply and that information.  Much appreciated!

Just curious where you found that extensive list of radio model numbers?

Thanks

Here's another Car Radio site that lists your # 7302721 radio as a 1969 Corvette Radio. If your 1970 Corvette was an early build, it might have gotten a '69 radio as the 1969 Corvette build was extended until December 1969 because of a GM strike. If you click on the part number, it will show a picture of the radio.
