The last of the shows will soon be only digital pictures and fond memories. If you are getting your Bolt ready for some last cruises, or just thinking about putting her up for winter, be sure to check out what parts you need from American Classic Truck Parts.

Got this really nice original radio in my '52 1/2T GMC Is it possible to keep all of the original knobs, dial etc and get a modern AM electronic system attached behind it???? My truck is a mild street rod and I really don't need originality, but it sure would be nice to have a working 12 volt AM radio. (original looking)

There are differences between these two options. The conversion option usually uses the mechanical tuning mechanism of the old radio and I would think provide an input for an mp3 player. The conversions usually provide both AM and FM.
The completely new models provide AM/FM and MP3 input. The installed radio looks pretty well identical. I think the buttons give electronic tuning which is faster, more accurate and more convenient than the old mechanism. The radio chassis is smaller, lighter and saves space behind the dash.
