Where did I say dependable??? That stuff kept us service techs busy fixing them...
My buddy's dad had one in a 55 Desoto (their other car was a 63 Studebaker Lark). The thing took up half of the dash. When you turned it on, the tubes would have to warm up before any music would come out. Had a steering wheel as big as a Mack B61.
I have a AM/FM radio in my Maverick that I believe is out of a 80's Ford (looks stock). I added a hidden Bluetooth FM modulator. Stock look with Pandora playing via Bluetooth.
The Retro Sound Model 2 looks like it may work. It is AM/FM/Bluetooth.
You would need to verify face size and shaft width.
Retro sound is a good radio I installed one in a mustang. Almost all radios now have adjustable shafts for width,And you can install most radios in a Mav or Comet pretty easily.
The thing that gets me about those Retro Sound radios is that they don't look like anything that was O.E.M. in the '60s & '70s.
Thats a good thing
How so?? The whole point of "retro" is to appear like the factory stuff but be modern.
If you don't want to make it look original, 'might as well just get a nice system with digital displays and all the modern features. Cutting out the OEM bezel is easy.
The factory one looked and sounded like a pos,the only thing that they are good for is a boat anchor
IF you have the stock bezel for a earlier model('72 I believe) a '68-'71 Fairlane/Torino/Falcon/Ranchero/Cyclone etc radio is a EXACT fit...
I'm getting ready to put a '68 Torino radio in my Comet using a NOS '73 bezel... Only difference in it and earlier bezel is the '73 has a slight cut in bottom to accommodate the R-L fader control that was moved from knob behind tuning... Approx '75 the radios changed to more of a universal corporate design of other Ford models, so if it fit a Granada or LTD it probably fits the Maverick/Comet...
Why don't you STFU??? No one cares about your opinion...
Apairantly you must have one I guess. Wow
Some people like the look and sound of an original factory radio. Some don't. Can't we all get along?
I want a factory AM/FM. My plan is to have modern guts installed so I maintain the original look but with todays sound quality. There are a couple of companies out there that do the conversion for around $400.
