    Choosing old tape deck

    I am restoring an 87 Jeep. I want to put in an oem head unit for restoration purposes. I can go on ebay and find a chrysler/jeep period correct tape deck with no problems. However, I found a Jeep unit that was made by Alpine (https://www.ebay.com/itm/173584560686?ViewItem=&item=173584560686&ssPageName=ADME:X:COCE:US:3160) . Will this unit be any better in quality or offer me anything that a standard OEM unit from 1987 wont? Thanks in advance for any help.
  2. The head unit you suggested is not a shaft style.
  3. I am looking to put a new system into a 76 corvette. I want the system to be a shaft style unit so I am not cutting into the dash. There are companies like Custom Autosound that make systems to fit but from the forums I am hearing they are poorly built units so you are paying a lot for nothing. What I would like to know is if I am going to be running an external amp, does the quality of the head unit matter? I have two choices; 1- buy a vintage (80's) shaft style unit from a well known company like Alpine and add an amp to help with the sound quality. With this choice I am limited to the number of current day technologies I can add such as MP3/ SD/ USB/ bluetooth etc. The second choice is to buy a current day unit from a company like Pyle (https://www.pyleusa.com/am-fm-mpx-mp3-playback-w-usb-sd-aux-in-a-pair-of-4-speakers.html). These are extremely cheap receivers but have all the current bells and whistles. Question - If I buy the cheap Pyle receiver can I make up for the poor quality receiver with quality amps and speakers? Any help is much appreciated.
