    Not concerned about it looking factory but don’t want to cut the dash
    $575 is out of my budget

    Mine ended up being like 3 bills. For the same money you can get a pretty good aftermarket unit. I wanted it to look stock so it worked for me.

    IDK , I have seen the ones from the factory with the switch in the middle for AM/FM but had an 8 track down low in the console. Which I have two of them. I thought the 8 tracks that had the flip thing for the dial came later in the 80's I think I would not spend 500 bucks for a stock looking radio. I guess if you wanted something like that that's cool. If I had a stock beauty that I was keeping all original for show, then I would just hide a receiver and what ever in another spot to keep the original radio.

    Did some searching for new design radios.
    Amazed how inexpensive they are compared to factory replacement.
    Going to put a WTB in the swap meet section for a cut dash.

    Thanks

    Reaper has a stack of aftermarket ones he removed through the years, I put a Clarion radio in back in the day, some have adj knobs, there was no need to cut the dash. I don't like the look of the aftermarket ones, nothing looks better in the interior than a OG radio.

    Specmo here in the Detroit and flint fixes stock radios BTW.
    I went there for a bulb and and a 8 track belt, the girl came out w/ a nOS face, $10, I about $h/t myself. Yes I did buy it. The 8 track doors get loose and scratched from sliding Tapes in, The flint location has some wiring too, at least they used to, they also carry and work on speedos and cruise, they have all the colored gears too for the speedos.
