Classic looking car radios

    I've been meaning to replace the non working radio in my Wolseley 16/60. It was something I got for little enough off Ebay and it replaced some similar unit. The original unit was smaller than the slot, so a decently skilled effort reducing the area with extra and matching wood veneer was done.

    Now one option could be to try get an AM-FM conversion to an old OEM unit off Ebay, but I think it better to get something modern that visually blends in, but there is a risk with an old unit. However, the conversion largely replaced the old, possible wonky guts, so maybe.

    This was one I quickly found from a search. A speaker probably necessary too, as the output would be wasted with a decades old unit.

    Neg earth, for nearly 10 years, changing made the clock go haywire, so I disconnected it.

    Window washer working again tho.

    Someone at the IVVCC First Monday meeting might have an idea.

    7" x 3" is the size of the slot. I'll find something.

    Thanks, a bit expensive, but that may be the price. I have to say they should give dimensions. I can't guess.

    Standard single din size I would guess, email or ring them to confirm sizes.

    Nah, 7" x 2" perhaps? 3" sounds too tall.

    Plenty of old 2 spindle mount stuff around, depends how period correct you wish to be.
