New member w /87 300 SDL in Mexico

Hello. I'm a Canadian living in San Carlos Sonora MExico for 10 years. We own a real estate company and took a listing for a person that had gone north for health reasons never to return. It took a month of negotiating but I finally drove his Mexico car home. Changed all fluids, tires and spent a day on the paint. It was parked in the shade but 100 ft from the salt water sea so all rubber seals were removed and metal surfaces cleaned. The A/C, windows and sunroof work. Bad news - the clock, passenger mirror and antenna do not work. May have to trade it in. I'm going to love this car.
Any ideas on what the original radio was and where to find?
