Music to my ears

Radio and speaker installation is complete! As previously mentioned, I found a 4″ pair of JVC speakers for the doors and a matching pair of JVC 6 1/2″ speakers for the rear deck.

The doors:


And the rear well:


What I ended up doing for the rear was to build a box 33″ wide by 7 1/2″ high by 5″ deep, just enough to fit tight into the rear well under the rolled up top and frame. Covered it with cheap black automotive carpet and it looks like it’s part of the car.  Other than the grilles being very modern looking, it doesn’t look too bad if I say so myself.

The Retrosound Model One radio installed:


It looks very appropriate in the 1974 dashboard.
