The Hills are Alive with the Sound of .........
« on: April 16, 2014, 09:49:30 PM »
Old School PHILCO AM Radio.

Got it installed today and rattled the 6 X 9 's.....  I installed the aftermarket stereo in the glove box so i can retain CD and FM function. 

Its going to be a good summer.

Once i started looking, it wasnt a hard to find item.  I did however have to tell about 20 people how to bench test there unit to see if it works.

Still have the working, original, AM/FM Stereo 8-Track. I should order a replacement belt for the 8-track now that I have a source.
