Sounds good neighbor . Is this what you do for a living? Would love to see some more of your work.

Still working on dash getting every thing right and ready to plug in first try.
Here's the new radio sounds great with the dual voice coil speaker.

Cool

Charles it appears that you have done this several times before. I know as I see in the pix the key, is in the ignition even though the dash is on the bench. Good Stuff

Looks good! I also went with a DVC speaker on my 58 for a factory look, but used a Ken Harrison radio, good sound even at high volumes.

Hi! Larry
I went with the Antique Automobile Radio Inc., Model 313401 having never seen one before in person just pictures, as I was more concerned about appearance then function at the time of purchase and just liked the look and the fact you can just plug an I-Pod directly into the unit, as we are going to use the ash tray for storing the I-Pod and charging. When I first opened the box and took one look I knew it looked just like I thought, but was shocked by it's small size being only 2.5 X 2.5 X 9.0 I was taken aback just a little. But once we got it installed it made me really smile. Plays music through the custom autosound Model 3006 DVC Dual Voice Coil speaker like an Angel or Uncle Ted on Saturday Night.
And I must say the quality of the chrome, style, and the really high quality of the original look knobs really made my day. This was the first part we have purchased new for this car that we didn't have to rework to bring it up to the standard we have set for this car. We did rework the wiring harness just a little but that's really just me, it wasn't needed.

Nice clean install. Mine took a lot more work for the speaker because of the limited space between the speaker housing and center tunnel, nothing a 4 lb hammer couldn't solve . I put my usb/3.5 av in the ash tray as well, the rear ash tray houses a usb port for charging other devices.

REAR

I just use a micro SD card and reader for all my tunes. But can also listen to music or any of a number of stations via my phone. Gotta love the new tech we have today. I remember as a kid if you wanted more selections, you only had two choice's, bigger antenna, or eight track tape player
