I’m sure we have a original radio somewhere around here.PeetParticipantJune 15, 2018 at 9:51 amPost count: 146
I’ve sent radios to Aurora Design and was impressed. They can take any vintage radio and upgrade it with new electronics, add bluetooth, usb and mini jack. Wtf good is a radio that doesn’t work?PeteParticipantJune 15, 2018 at 10:07 amPost count: 880
This guy restored mine; he’s in Lakewood, Co. In addition to getting the AM channel working, he added an FM board and an MP3 connection. It works great.

That’s pretty cool, I didn’t know that could be done.russParticipantJune 15, 2018 at 4:41 pmPost count: 82
years ago I had a big M radio converted it looks killer in the car and worked pretty well too
this was done in 2008 and i’m sure they have way better stuff out there now

Stock radio conversions are bad ass. A company called “Aurora” makes the kits. KCW had one done on that crazy black 356. I also did one in my Notch, love it.

They need blasted and painted….. But no sense having seats sitting around without a car to put them in.
Priority would be:
1- body on pan
2- doors on body
3- convertible top frame repair and paint
3- convertible top assembly/adjustment and canvas.
4- window frame repair + chrome + assembly
Then we can think about all the dumb stuff like interior, engine, bumpers, and fuel system.WAY2COOLParticipantJune 18, 2018 at 3:57 amPost count: 207

Tore your seats down yesterday….. Some good OG stuff under one recover… 😎 gonna get the frames al blasted and painted…. Shiney black right??unkParticipantJuly 19, 2018 at 1:46 pmPost count: 385
Shiney is good. Knocked-down gloss would be good too. Whatever u guys think would be badder-ass.unkParticipantJuly 20, 2018 at 7:43 amPost count: 385
That tag is cool. Save and and hook it back in the seat after its reupholstered. Pretty cool.FranzKeymasterJuly 20, 2018 at 8:25 amPost count: 3460
