Need OEM AM/FM radio for my 1971 Mustang


Recommended Posts

Howdy!  I need a correct for 1971 (or correct style save for year) AM /FM radio for my 1971 Mach 1 Mustang with A/C (if that makes a difference).  Car has an after market radio I would love to get rid of.  My car came with an AM radio, but I would prefer AM / FM in the spirit of usefulness.  

 

Thanks!

I got my AM from Mike at Motorcity Mustang.

Here in the UK we have companies that will install FM into a AM radio without it showing outwardly. So if you want to stay original you can but with the twist of secret FM

Thanks Steve! Yes, that FM adapter with an original AM radio is an option also....thanks for the thought!

I had mine converted to modern. It is an original radio with modern internals. It has an internal amp preamp outputs blue tooth etc.

It was spendy but worth it

The full package was $650. He does offer cheaper alternatives
