Talk about easy! Everything you need to swap a genuine OEM Pontiac (Delco) CD player into your Fiero or Firebird* (as well as other 80-88 GM vehicles). That's right. This CD radio swap package consists of one Pontiac Monsoon AM FM CD radio with equalizer and CD Changer capability, a new wiring harness adapter, a new antenna adapter, as well as detailed instructions for the Fiero swap (although this is pretty easy and you might not even need them.) The swap should be just as easy* in other GM vehicles and most of the instructions will be relevant for them as well.
This radio is the rare version that DOES have the ability to control a factory changer. The auxiliary port is fully functional. This also means you can hook an auxiliary input converter to it and interface an mp3 player or satellite radio tuner. You get much better sound quality with a direct connection (auxiliary input) than you do through the RF modulated interfaces that some people use.
At a minimum, this package will work in all the following vehicles:
- 1982 Pontiac Firebird
- 1984 Pontiac Fiero
- 1985 Pontiac Fiero
- 1986 Pontiac Fiero
- 1987 Pontiac Fiero
- 1988 Pontiac Fiero
- 1989 Pontiac Firebird (+TA)
The radio is used, but has been tested and is in good condition*. It has the amber (red) display and small Pontiac and Delco logos, so it looks just like it came in your Pontiac from the factory.
More importantly, it has the TheftLock feature DEACTIVATED. Don't settle for a radio with the TheftLock activated! You'll have to pay a dealer $30-50 to get it unlocked.
With our packages, you just plug the adapters into the radio and into the existing plugs in your car and you're ready to start playing CDs and CDRs*!! This installation requires virtually no technical knowledge or automotive skill.* We have several customers who completed the install in 20 minutes!!
Why try to buy the radio one place and the adapters somewhere else and pay shipping twice? Get everything you need right here, plus instructions, and save yourself some time, money and aggravation.

Ken Smith, one of our customers, was nice enough to document his install here:
This is a nice harness with solid wire between the plugs. It is NOT cut and spliced!
Included in this package:
- 1 used genuine Pontiac OEM (Delco) Monsoon AM FM CD radio w/ EQ & CD changer controls
- 1 new wiring harness adapter
- 1 new antenna adapter
- Some of the Firebird vehicles have an interference problem at the back of the opening. Please make sure you have 5 3/4 inches of depth in your opening. Other than that, this radio is the same size as your opening.
- If you have the factory subwoofer, a couple wires will need spliced together in the adapter, but instructions are provided. It is a very simple modification.
- The radio has a 90 day warranty
