Lightbulb Aftermarket radio help

I am looking for input on the "classic" stye aftermarket indash radio's for my 67. What do you have, are you happy with the quality, sound, fit, etc. I am leaning towards one with cd changer capabilty since most I see still come with cassette..... Where did you get it, etc. Cost is a concern... Any and all info will be appreciated and as always, pics rule........

Re: Aftermarket radio help

The two places I am a regular at are: www.truckandcarshop.com/ and www.classicindustries.com/, they are reputable. I physically shop there (southern CA) but they have online catalogs so check them out. I have seen the display on these.

All the best........

Re: Aftermarket radio help

I installed a Custom Autosound system w/CD changer in a 69 a few months ago. Dual speaker in the dash, 2 6x9s in the package shelf under a mesh/perforated insert.

Pretty simple, straight-forward install, no issues.

Driving a #s-matching Z in the rain..... and lovin' it....

Re: Aftermarket radio help

A few months back I put in a custom autosound radio(USA-2 I think) in my 67 RS/SS. I was looking into the CD changer add on, but I really don't have that many CDs anymore. I went with one that only had the radio, and it had an input for anything that you want to play your music from. So any MP3 player, or even a portable CD player can be used. I just ran the input line up through my compartment in my custom console. Then I can pull my mp3 player out of the stowage compartment and play my music. I sounds pretty good, and looks good too. I have it pushing some infinity Kappas in my kick panels and my rear deck. The best price I could find was from a store on Ebay.

Thanks guys.......
I like the "been there, done that" experience.
Josh, I am just discovering the superior sound quality of cd's the last few years, so I've aquired quite a few. My cassette's are getting worn out and I can't find a good 8 track player anymore. All this MP3 and ipod stuff is too futuristic for me....
