    Looking for advice for old car...

    Howdy all.

    I have a 64.5 Mustang Convertible that is currently in the middle of a
    restoration. I have the interior all ripped out right now, and am beginning
    to think about music...

    I have been driving it a lot lately, and that has made it abundantly clear that
    the original AM radio is not nearly good enough for a good cruise. (There really
    aren't any music stations on AM in Chicago anymore...)

    I have been planning on hiding a new head unit in the glove box or some such
    place, installing a stereo speaker in the dash, and also a toggle swich that
    would allow me to use either the new head unit, or the old radio. (Switching the
    speaker outputs to the speaker only...)

    I also have heard a little about new head units that come with remotes that
    might work good for this application. I could install a remote or a remote face
    plate in some easy to reach location.

    But I am not expecting a ground shaking high-end experience here... just
    something that will allow me to play FM, CD's and maybe MP3 CD's as well.

    All it has to do is sound decent through my small pair of dash mounted stereo
    speakers.

    Any one have some good suggestions for what I want to do?

    Thanks!

    -Zim

    I would just replace the old radio with a new HU and not worry about hiding it. Chances are if your restoring this car, your not going to have to worry about people stealing from it because you wont let it out of your site. If you want it to look origianl, now thats another thing. If thats what you want to do, let us know otherwise just replace the old radio with a new one!
