Default 1977 MM Lifeliner, New APCOR Radio or Old

I have 2 APCOR's, 1 on its way to being sold. First I would liek to get some input...New model vs. old. I have checked them both and they work fine, not that anyone around here listens to them anymore...

What do you think...? Should I keep the older model with the car or the newer model?

Then one is off to E-Bay......

I'll take the old one since this is period correct for my Lifeliner. Any idea what it might fetch?

my thoughts . which is more period correct for your car? the trick is to have everything the same year as the car. I know it's not necessary and all of that. but if we are honest we are all trying to move in that direction. I would swap both of my mid 80s #30s for a set of mid 70s if they were in good condition. same with any other piece of equipment on the car. so for me it's a no brainier keep the one that is most correct for the car sell the other one to get something else. besides that red box doesn't go with your decor.

This would be perfect for my Lifeliner and would appreciate knowing when it goes on eBay if this is the one he sells. I have one like the new one already and would be willing to trade but then, you'd have two and you can talk to someone. You can see mine here somewhat.
