Since I'm buying a 66 GTO and the HU is only AM, I've found a company on ebay but they want 575-595 + shipping:omg: Anyone know another company that makes them? I don't want to go the route of the HU in the glovebox or under the dash, trying to keep it original as possible with a few upgrades here and there.

I think there is a place called "Hidden Audio" or something like that. It connects a shaft style radio to something in the trunk. What I am doing for my 66 mustang is going radio delete in the dash...connecting an ipod to a rf360, then the 360 to amps.

So which one would look better and more original? There is a $300 difference.

depending on the condition of a " classic" some people will not like the fact that you cut the dash..

i wouldent cut it either way. cause there is nothing like an all original classic car.
