Car Radios


Want to buy a new car radio with knobs for the Camino. Where does one shop ? 

Nice to have Bluetooth and a USB port but want it to look like it came with the car..

Lots of companies doing conversions. Not stupid money and then it looks completely stock. Had mine done several years ago.

I had an original AM Acadian radio completely rebuilt for my 65 Beaumont. Looks exactly like original but inside is bluetooth, AM/FM, 3.5mm Aux in jack, USB for mp3 player and 2.3amp for phone charging.
Looks great and once installed, I'll know more about how it functions.
Used mrheaterbox.com/ out of Harrowsmith Ontario. Wasn't cheap but I love the concept of having the original look with all of the new functionality. I also got a new speaker that will fit in the same location to handle the updated power.

A buddy of mine is a dealer for an outfit that makes new radios that look like old ones. 

Antique Automobile Radio in Florida:    www.radiosforoldcars.com

Their website lists 3 dealers (including my buddy) in Canada.

I pulled the guts out of mine and installed a bluetooth unit. $12 each from ebay. Not really interested in listening to drongos rabbit on and adds on the radio any more. The one I installed doesnt need an amp. The red board i put in the radio and routed power through the on off switch, bought 2 good speakers to fit in the front and back seat and it booms. The little panel one i put in my old petrol bowser with disco lights amp and speakers. This one is small enough to hide in the glovebox but requires an amp.

IMG_1885.jpegIMG_0879.jpegI bought a Retro Sound stereo with bluetooth and placed it (best I could) into the original am radio that was in my Beaumont. 

www.retromanufacturing.com was the sight but I went through a dealer in Toronto. they were super easy to deal with, and the it was really easy to install. 

Here are a couple pics

Hi Beaumont66, thanks for your post and the topic is very interesting. I am very interested in your pics but your picture files won't download into the site and we can't open the attachments. Could you re-save them as a jpeg file and up load them again?

I was able to click and open them on my PC.

It looks cool. May go that direction. Did you transplant the Beaumont surround ?

Yeah I took the face plate off the original, used a wire brush on a drill to clean it up, and then it slipped right into place. I had to do some cutting to get the new stereo to fit in where the previous buttons and display were. I'm pretty happy the way it turned out.
