I, along with probably most other people my age, habitually associate the brand name of Delco (Delco Electronics, technically) with General Motors (GM) electrical and electronic products such as radios, storage batteries, alternators, and spark plugs. Dayton Engineering Laboratories Co., of Dayton, Ohio, merged with GM's AC spark plug division in 1974 to become AC-Delco. I bought many sets of AC-Delco spark plugs for my cars over the years. Nowadays, GM's electronic products go by the name of ACDelco (no hyphen now). Attempting to research the full provenance of the modern-day AC-Delco is headache-inducing due to sell-offs to Delphi, Aptiv, and other entities. The best I can determine is that the contemporary ACDelco is a brand name for products that might be manufactured by many different companies. This advertisement searching for electrical and mechanical engineers from a 1964 issue of Electronics magazine appeared during Delco's glory years.

EE's & ME's - Find Your Opportunity in Product Design and Development From These New Openings at Delco Radio
A constant flow of new electronic products has helped Delco Radio Division, General Motors Corporation, establish a position of leadership in the electronic field. From Delco research come such exclusive developments as the unique 1964 Cadillac Comfort Control. With only one setting of the thermostat, this recent Delco development automatically maintains a constant, comfortable atmosphere within an automobile, regardless of changes in the weather outside.
As the search for new products continues at Delco, challenging opportunities prevail - in many areas - for capable engineers:
Heater, Air Conditioner, and Ventilation Control ME's
- with 3-5 years experience, for development, engineering production liaison, and re-designing of comfort control systems including vacuum valves and mechanical controls.
Subminiature Military Communications Equipment
EE or ME - for assignment to development group designing all-transistor portable transmitters and receivers, operating in 2-100 mc range. FM - AM - FSK - CW - SSB modulation.
Automotive Radio Design and Development
EE - to work with Senior Engineer on advanced development of auto radios and other entertainment devices, including FM-AM, miniaturized circuitry and components.
ME - for design of small electronic mechanisms, including FM-AM, Signal Seeking and push-button tuners, and components modules.
EE or ME - for packaging of auto radios and associated tuners, solenoids, etc. Required to make some engineering contacts with automobile manufacturers.
Digital Circuits and Systems
