i omitted the glove box, and fabricated a special box out of light sheet metal with masonite back. Took lots of trial and error to get it right. Then mounted a modern CD player through the masonite back. For front speakers, I fabricated a masonite mounting plate for 2 4" 3 way speakers. I cut off the frame of my original front 4x10 and screwed it onto the face of the mounting board, and re-installed the rubber gasket. Covered it with light grille cloth, and fabricated a new mounting bracket. For rear speakers, I mounted 6x9's from under the package tray, and covered them with repopped original grille covers. My speaker holes has been hogged out, too, like they had been cut out with pliers! It took quite a bit of patience and a little welding to repair, but now it looks "almost" original.
Regular radio was single 4x10 in dash. Single rear speaker was optional. Multiplex used speaker holes cut in the kick panels, and two rear speakers (I think--could be one rear speaker, as pass side is not cut like driver side.)
