www.VintageCarTruckRadios.com is for those car collectors and car restorers who must have vintage car radios and vintage truck radios for their vintage and classic cars and trucks.
Nothing else will do, because you want a 100% original vintage or classic car, and an OEM radio is that finishing touch that really completes an interior for show-winning results.
For the ultimate in vintage car ownership, cruising around town in your highly original collector car or truck is often spoiled by seeing that ill-fitting modern radio sitting in your dashboard.
Or worse – having to stare at a hole in your dashboard where the vintage OEM radio once sat.
This just won’t do!
An Incomplete Dashboard Will Hurt You At Competitions
It’s a fact that not having the correct vintage OEM radio in your classic only will hurt it at competitions.
Original or resto-mod – you have a classic car or truck that you worked hard to restore and you want it to be complete.
Why let the lack of an OEM radio get in the way of fun?
Many Old Car Radios Were Removed Back In The Day
The sad fact is, many of the cars we used to drive as kids had their old AM radios (and 8-tracks too) removed and replaced with aftermarket AM/FM cassette units so we could take our music with us.
I have to admit that I did this too. I removed the original AM 8 Track radio in my 1972 Monte Carlo and replaced it with an aftermarket AM/FM cassette unit – guilty as charged!
Little did we know that someday we would be seeking those original vintage radios to make our collector cars complete!
Vintage Car Radios Are Hard To Find Locally
After replacing the metal that was cut out to accommodate a modern AM/FM cassette radio (along with the entire dashboard) in my 1967 Pontiac Tempest, I realized that vintage car radios were hard to find as I searched high and low for a plain and simple OEM AM radio.
It took me a couple of years trudging through local swap meets and car shows to find an original Pontiac AM radio for my Tempest.
Swap Meets And Car Shows
In the beginning, the only way I could find vintage car radios for my projects was at local swap meets and car shows. It was a truly hit or miss process as you never know what you’re going to find. And I hardly ever found exactly what I was looking for.
It could take literally years to find what I was looking for. Or, worst case, I would never find what I needed.

Then, by accident, I stumbled on vintage car radios on ebay!
