I am concidering going into buisiness for myself building custom radios for classic cars. I have seen alot of questions posted about radios here so I thought I would try to guage demand for something like this.
My radios look 100% stock, mount and fit just like stock, but have modern internals. They have a digital display hidden in the face that can be turnied on/ off to hide it, four channel output with rca adapters for external amps, 30 station presets, and a remote mount tape deck that you can put under the dash or in the glove box. the problem is the price (approx. $700.00). Everyone loves the radio until it's price time. I can't make them any cheaper because each one is built by hand plus parts.
ANYWAY, I'm not asking anyone to buy one....I just want a quick survey. Would you be interested in something like this for your car, or would you be more inclined to buy a non-stock looking radio that fit the dash? Or would you have the old one restored?
Thanks everyone, this will help me to decide wether I will pursue this any further.
