It's period correct, but as Rumb suggests, whether it's the correct model of radio for your particular car will depend on what the 3 digit radio code is on the cars data plate.   Being that it is a Mexico, it's a two piece unit set up, in that it'll have a separately mounted amplifier.  Make sure that you have that.

Hi.. Data plate attached. There is another small thing that came with it. I think it's the amp. I will post a Pic of that soon as well.
