1965 Ford Mustang
This radio started life as an Ford Factory AM radio. It was converted to AM/FM Stereo with aux inputs. This customer requested that we relabel the dial face with both the AM and FM dial markings. This can be done on many radios that have the dial numbers printed on a metal panel behind the dial glass. Dial markings moulded into the plastic lens or etched on the glass dial cannot be altered. If you look carefully, you can see the small status LED indicator installed between the 108 and 16 on the far right hand side of the dial. (See 1966 Chevy radio for description of the status LED)
1935 Ford Radio
This 1935 Ford radio was converted using only the original control head. A new smaller enclosure for the electronics was fabricated for the AM/FM conversion electronics. The flexible mechanical cables are removed from the control head and the volume and tuning controls are mounted directly behind the head with electrical cables running to the new radio. This allows for greater flexiblity in locating the radio tuner/amplifier box in the vehicle. Converting the original control head using this method keeps the original tube AM radio intact and can be swapped back into the car should the customer decide to return the car to pure stock operation. We have found this to be the best solution as the old 1930's and 40's radios are becoming very scarce.
Delco 1966 Chevrolet AM Radio
This Chevy radio has been converted to AM/FM Stereo with the Bluetooth/USB/Aux input option. The only change to the face is a small LED just past the 16 behind the radio dial on the above radio. This LED lights orange for FM, red for AM, green for Aux input, and blinking green when in USB pause mode. A seperate small blue LED for the Bluetooth status is installed next to the radio mode status LED. On many of the radios, as you can (can't) see, the LED's do not show when the radio is off.
We start the process by removing the old AM radio electronics from the case.

To send us a radio for repair or conversion please print and fill out our repair form: Repair form2018.pdf Include this form with your radio. Pack it very well especially around the face of the radio as the control shafts are very fragile and very hard to find replacements if bent or broken. You can figure on an extra $100 per side for broken control shafts. Send the radio to the address at the top of the repair form. - Thank you.
