Where can I buy a new Dual Knob old school AM/FM Radio??

Looking for an old school AM/FM Aftermarket Radio (Pioneer-Kenwood ect...) to go into like a 69 Camaro dash with out having to cut the dash bezel up, Does anyone know where I can purchase that style of radio at, I've been everywhere in my area and even ebay doesn't have anything but junk for sale? Thx for any help....

Re: Where can I buy a new Dual Knob old school AM/FM Radio??

I have been fighting this same issue for over a month now. I've bought two radios and neither fit. I need one that has 6 1/4 inches between the shafts but all I have found is 5 7/8. I assume that the Camaro and Nova dash is the same so you would be looking for the same radio as me. I found one on epay and bought it but it hasn't arrived yet. It is a marine stereo and the ad stated 6 1/4 inches for the shaft width.
Do me a favor and measure your Camaro dash to be sure what your shaft width needs to be and post it.

If you can find a Kenwood 3006, it's a nice system and it fits. Bad news is it hasn't been manufactured in about 3 years.

Here's a link to a thread I started on this. Anyone have one of these stereos?

It has a few links to old style radios that fit your dash.
I still haven't decided what to do yet.

Ck 2's link to "www.radiosforoldcars.com" is definitely the route I want to go for my stereo.

Just bought one from ebay. Company's website is www.vintageautoradio.com. I paid $149. It has no CD/cassete but has provisions for Ipod or remote CD changer. Fits good but have not wired it up yet.

Re: Where can I buy a new Dual Knob old school AM/FM Radio??

What I did, and haven't heard it done yet, is convert a mid 70's Delco to fit. They are all over Ebay.

With moderate modifications of course , it looks at home in my dash, pushbuttons and all. Sure it isn't quite year correct but for an AM/FM GM radio for $40 it looks good. I have 'new' 1968 knobs on the way to complete the look.

Re: Where can I buy a new Dual Knob old school AM/FM Radio??

Well the plot thickens so to speak, I'm not wanting it for one of my Camaro's but I'm doing some service work on a buddies Pick UP truck and I just want a new dual knob radio so I don't have to cut up his factory dash with these new big square pull out messes they sell these days. Theres lots of used available but I'd like a nice new Kenwood or Pioneer something that looks better than the Kraco, Realistic or Spark-a-matic crap I'm only able to find like at Radio Shack, Shucks and other places around my area, so I guess unless I go back intime I'm stuck finding used and hoping for the best?? Maybe I should dust off one of my old Pioneer Super Tuner II's I have stashed away... Naaa his trucks not worthy of that!

Yankit, I bought a JVC AM/FM/Cassette from a member that does not fit my dash. The distance between the shafts weren't wide enough (I think 5 7/8) so I had to start looking elsewhere. I also have a Mitsubishi radio. Let me know if you are interested in one of them.

Many of the older aftermarket stereos had shafts that were adjustable by loosening the nut on the shaft at the case.

There is some great NOS stuff on ebay. I purchased a brand new GM NOS 8 track player. It sounds good too.
