    I own a 1988 Monte Carlo & a 1965 Thunderbird neither has factory radio. The Tbird has an old cassette player POJ someone installed UGH! The Chevy has a Pioneer with all bells from radio to amp to 10″ Kickers , Clarions inside, to little 3″ in dash. I do have original radio but no intentions of reinstalling it. What’s ur take on both

      Hi, Gary. If you’re happy with the tunes your Monte Carlo is pushing out, I wouldn’t change a thing, unless there is something you want to add like satellite radio. You’re T-bird sounds like it’s ready for an upgrade, and I would take a look at all of the offerings from Autosound, as they’re going to fit the original radio location and look like they belong there.

      Hi, Phil. In regards to your model A. during 1931, radios were chiefly an aftermarket accessory with the control head secured to the steering column with cables running to a tube styled radio attached to the inside firewall. Few manufacturers offer a conversion for these. Although if your Model A is a street rod, then simply choose a radio with the features and style to complement your interior. The ’39 Buick radio is a unique piece. There are numerous companies that will take your original radio and convert it with all new internals, with a wide range of options including AM/FM, CD, Bluetooth, etc. I would recommend this a good option for your build.

    I am converting my 55 T Bird from 6 volt to a 12 volt system. Do you have a classic radio xm / sirius ready to fit my dash with no modifications?
