Default Micor Radio Identification

I got these radios from the ambulance service that used to own my 1969 Miller Meteor Cadillac ambulance. These are the radios that they removed when it came out of service, but I don't know if they were what was originally installed in the car when it went into service. There are no dates stamped on the radios, and I would like to get an idea of there vintage. thanks Paul

Default Motorola Micor Motran

Paul
I have the identical set up that came in my 70 Rescuer,the Motorola Dialer,the micor and telephone set up....
I also remember having to take our 70-73 ambulances (Superior Ambulance Service) in to the local Motorola installer so they could install the Micors ,I distinctly remember that since I was the one who scheduled all 14 of our ambulances...that was summer of 1974.

Default Motorola MICOR Radios

I believe Motorola first began producing their MICOR line in late 1970 or so ... with the following availability date progression: Low Band models in October 1971... VHF in mid-1972... UHF in 1974... 800 MHz in 1978.

This photo was our new micor radio in a 1972 CB Olds Seville Amb if that helps. I don't remember it coming out any earlier, but certainly could have been added to the older rigs that were kept longer.

there is one piece at the bottom that screwed to the cabinet, and then the rest of the pieces that I have pictured connect to this one base. I am looking for the base. I don't have the car here to take a picture of what the "harp" looks like, looking up from the bottom, but next month, when it comes out of hibernation, I will post a picture.
