radio that came with an '83 urQ ... just one that would look
appropriate.  Info on Ti's page has already been posted.  

If you don't have any luck finding one closer to the correct part let me
know ... I'm pretty sure I have a non-Bose Gamma (it might be Delta, but
I'm pretty sure it is a Gamma) which I bought thinking it was a Bose
unit.  I don't think I'm ever going to use it, so if you want it
Louis-Alain just let me know and I'll let you have it for what I paid
for it.  It is true that it came from an early '90s car, but it does
have the large volume knob, and to my taste I think it matches the style
of the '83 interior ... you'd need to scrounge up the I/O connectors ...
but I think they are pretty common in the Type 44s ...
