Re: Car Stereo - What Do You Recommend?

On my 66, I take my jobsite Dewalt Radio that has bluetooth and a 20 volt lithium battery and place it on the back seat. I then plug the I phone into it and dial up my play list. It pumps the tunes out very well and I have no holes to cut or wires to play with. There is a radio in the dash but it isn't blue tooth capable. If the phone needs charging, the cigarette lighter handles that. Simple and cheap.

Wow! talk about being frugal with the car radio,youclutter the back seat and have to lug all that stuff in and out .I always knew that you were a thrifty lad B but you have taken it to newer heights. After all most people just want to push a button and turn the dial.That Dewalt is the size of a small tool box .Alex

Ha! Iíve been contemplating what to do for tunes in my Ď68 El Camino. I totally forgot that I used to just pack a boom box in some of my older cars back in the day. Iíve also been looking for an excuse to buy a job site radio. Such an easy solution. Done! Thanks for the reminder.

Well, when I finally stopped work and no real money to speak of was coming in, I felt the need to reconsider my spending priorities. Will I make it to the end? I'm good not knowing. Now, turn that boom box up will ya and lets rock.

That newer Dewalt is pretty nice and and clean sounding. The 20 volt seems to run forever.

Radio Conversion Products: FMC-1 FM Tuner (FM Mono) The FMC-1 is very small and unobtrusive, so small in fact that it can be mounted entirely in the head of a 1953-1959 Ford F100 radio. The FMC-1 can be used in all installations with a working radio.

I had Richard at R and B Vintage Radio in Nashville TN., convert my original AM push button radio in my 64 Corvair 5 years ago to an AM/FM stereo. I added an amp to it and the sound is great. I'm waiting for him to finish my factory AM/FM radio for my 75 C20 that's he's doing a full conversion on with HD radio.
