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)

Thanks in advance

Jeff

Jeff,

Yes, it is possible to convert with modern parts - $300-$400 by a radio shop.

It is also possible to by a new, modern AM/FM 12v that looks like an original GMC radio (and ports for iPods, etc) - $450-$550 without speaker.

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.
