Couldn't seem to find which stock GM radios would fit a 1992 Caprice. I'd like to upgrade the cassette player to a CD player. I have a stock cassette player from my 1996 Impy around, would it fit/work with a CD changer in the 92 caprice? Id' hate to spend the money on a CD player or a changer and not have it work after installation. TIA

I was looking to upgrade my plain radio in my '91 wagon to a factory CD player. The '94-'96 style will not work... and that is mostly what is out there. Scan eBay long enough and you'll fine one. Expect to pay about $150 for a good one.

In The 91-93 Models Years, Factory CD Players Were Hard To Come By!Since These Cars Were Mostly Purchased By The "Older Folks" And The CD-Player/Premium Stereo Setup Was An Option, Most Of Them Just Bought The Standard Cassette Setup. However,They Can Be Found! I Installed a 95 Model Caprice CD Player In My Wifes 93 Roadmaster Because She Preferred The "Factory Look" Also.I Bought a "Wire Harness Adaptor" That I Found Online and Moved The Factory Mounting Brackets On The 95 CD-Player and It Fit. I Personally Didn't Even Bother With a Factory Unit To Replace My 95 Caprice's Cassette Deck, I Bought an Alpine CDA-D857 "Full Face" CD (No Longer Available) and It Fits In The Factory Space With No Mounting Kit! Not To Mention It Has So Many More Features Than a Stock Factory Unit. Pioneer Has 2 "Full Face" CD Players Out There That Fit In The Factory Hole With No Adaptor Kits Currently. The Models Are: Pioneer DEH-P47DH and DEH-P77DH. You Can Look At Them Here, Though They Can Be Found at a Cheaper Price On E-Bay( $149.00 ) and ( $177.00 ). It's Just a Suggestion But Why Pay $150.00 For a Used Factory Unit With No Expandability When You Can Get One Of These? BTW, The Pioneer Units Also Have Optional 6 and 12 Disk Changers That Are Direct Plug In Units VS The Lame "FM Modulator" Unit You Would Have To Buy In Order To Make It Work With a Factory Unit!.....Mike

i know the early 90s grandams came with cdplayers along with cieras and skylarks. all youd have to do is take the mounting stuff from the radio in your caprice and put it on the new radio.

If he is anything like me, it is because the A) the factory CD player is more than enough and B) the stock look looks much better (IMO).

If You Have Your Mind Made Up On a Factory CD Unit, Here's One Out Of a 95 Impala SS On E-Bay!
A factory CD player from a '95 will NOT easily swap into a '92. Besides, they have the "Theft Lock" to deal with.

He needs a pre-'94 style CD player. Just about any GM model will work, but skip the Pontiacs as they have red lights and will not match the rest of your dash. NOTE: MOST of them that you find will be from Pontiacs. It took me several months to find one for my '91.

I believe this is the type you need...

Thanks again everyone. When I asked some people on ebay B4 bidding they told me that their post 1992 radios would fit and work fine. I'm not sure if they're misinformed or dishonest. Either way, the forum has saved me again!
