They haven't made them in around 15 years, unless someone still has a
barely used one stashed in a closet from upgrading to an aftermarket
unit then you'll probably have to settle on cleaning up and fixing an
old used unit. Ebay might be a good place to find one.

Personally I'm not sure why someone would want a 740 factory radio, they
weren't particularly great even when new. It's hard to find an
aftermarket unit that isn't gaudy but when you do, the performance and
features are far superior.

Unless you're restoring a Volvo to concourse condition I'd go for an up
to date system that will give you mp3 playback from USB memory sticks
(or similar). They're not all that expensive now. Lidl are advertising
one for £60 although I'd be wary of the quality of that one.

Hi David:

I may just have what you're looking for, but don't know if the frequency is
compatible with what you use in Australia? In Canada and the rest of North
America we have what are called the FM (frequency modulation) and AM
(amplitude modulation) bands.

I have a slightly used TD-3141, less the external amplifier. I owned a 1985
740 GLE and replaced mine around 1988 with a similar unit that my friend
gave me from his newer 740 Turbo.. In Canada, the winter salt would gum up
the power antenae and the newer unit would not raise the antenae when using
the cassette unit.

Does anyone know if this unit will work in Australia and whether the
controls are reversed? You can e-mail me - Cam@cvolvo.com if interested and
I can send photos, etc.... Cam
