64 mustang AM FM radio

Without breaking the bank what is a good retro looking AM/FM radio that will work out of the box and fit into the dash of my 64 1/2 conv. I do not want a digital display .I understand Retrosound is not that good or am I wrong?


Thanks


Mark

I have a Custom Autosound USA 630 in my 64.
Plug and play.
I have the older model with ipod jack but still has an LED display when it is turned on.
I have it running to a twin speaker set up on the dash (60 watts).
It is an OK radio but not fantastic.

It rarely gets turned on but is there for when I need it.
The best sound is by winding the window down.

Hope this helps.

I have the Retrosound.
I looks vintage and sounds good.
I wanted Bluetooth connectivity so that was the real reason for my purchase.
It's a bit pricey.
I have seen some old Kraco, audiovox, pioneer, and other older stereo systems on eBay with regular non digital displays.
Some are NOS.
I like the chromed out audiovox, it's the same one I had in my dart about 30 years ago.
Good luck.

Actually, I think that you're mixing up RetroSound and Custom AutoSound (CAS). The general consensus is that RetroSound is excellent and the Custom AutoSound radios are crap! (and their customer service is even worse). Do a search on the Vintage Mustang Forum to get an idea: Classic car stereo options - Vintage Mustang Forums

Yes you are right I was mixing up the two. I will take another look at Retro.

Thanks
