I have some original radios. Email me DIRECTLY (see below) if I can help.
I don't see any pictures now, but to the board, from Atlantic Canada!! I took the liberty of adding your VIN to our little VIN List. Can't wait to see more of you and your car around here!!
Thanks! There's the only pics I have so far... I'm gone for an exercise for the next few weeks.
What's the best tires size for the stock 14 inch rim?
Also, anyone have a link to some spacers? I really don't want the wheels tucked so far under the car...
From Virginia Beach
Your original tire size is C78-14 the height was 25.2" with a tread width of 4.5" You can buy this size tire from coker if you really want it to be original. The closest size in new tires would be a 185/75/14 this gives you a height of 24.9" with a tread width of 4.8" You could also run 195/75/14's they have a height of 25.5" and a tread width of 5.1" Either one will fit your wheels. If you don't have power steering wider tires (tread width) can make the car harder to steer, and using spacers to move the wheels farther out can cause problems too. Hope this helps.
Thanks. That helps a lot. Really I want the rear tires out a bit more, as they look a lot more tucked than the front. I do not have PS, so I won't put too wide a tire up front
Looks great. I recommend Going with this setup to firm up the steering/suspension for smooth ride exp - http://www.p-s-t.com/s.nl/it.A/id.617/.f?sc=12
