ALMOST the last peice of the puzzle. I sent the original radio off to R & B Vintage Radio and had them clean and upgrade it to AM/FM/iPOD input. its not 4 channel with 160 watt output. I will only use the underdash speaker with a dual voice coil. They replaced a broken volume control knob, repainted teh glass and polished the chrome, looks great. $325.

Support those brave men/women who stand the "Thin Blue Line" and lock up those on the wrong side of that line.

What did you use for an under-dash speaker? I'm getting ready to put a radio in my '61, but can find no mounting hardware (threaded studs, etc.) for the speaker.


This is what happens when you live with a house-full of women, the wife and daughters name all the cars:
1960 Impala - "Frankie" (Frank Sinatra)
1961 Apache - " 'Mater Jr." (wrecker)
1972 SuperBeetle Convertible - "Juliet"
1976 SuperBeetle Convertible - "Olaf"
1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce - "Romeo"
