SEE MIKE EXPLAIN OUR SERVICES!

Any automobile radio from 1932 to 1982 can be (1) restored to the original manufacturer’s specifications, or (2) converted to AM/FM digital with plug in jacks to receive satellite radio, MP3, ipod or any other pluggable source of sound using the outstanding Aurora products. Bluetooth 4.1 and a USB port are also available. What you choose depends on the kind of sound you want to have. At Retro Radio, we serve to meet your audio needs while keeping the original look of the automobile radio. For more information, click ‘Services’ at left.

On some rare radios, we make new replacement parts for the more difficult to find pieces, such as 1938 Buick dial gears, 1940 Cadillac push buttons and thumb wheels, Ford tuning shafts and other specialty items. We have a small, machine shop and urethane pressure casting quipment that enables us to make some hard to find items.

BEFORE AND AFTER CONVERSION

I first took a look at the inside. I stripped down the radio until I separated all the components from it's wooden housing. I ended up with the electronics, front cover + glass, a decorative plate and the knobs.
