For many makes, the default factory radio din't start supporting FM
until the mid-1980s. (I know this because my parents absolutely
refused to pay extra for FM, so we didn't have factory FM in the car
until 1987. My father did buy a car with no factory radio and install
an aftermarket one, which of course did have FM, in 1986.)
