NOS aftermarket radio opinion [Update]
#1
Hey guys I found an aftermarket sears dash mate deluxe am FM and 8 track on craigslist. Just wondering if anyone remembers or has had one of these. Its not so much the $30 I'm worried about its more my drive to get it 1 hr one way. and hoping the shafts fit our bezel.

What do you guys think? By the way I only have am right now.

[Update]

I've contacted the seller and he says the knobs are spaced 5 1/2" apart I double check the mustang and it seems to be 5 3/4". Is it such a good deal I alter the dash at all? I think I'm going to do it, at that price I can't say no

My car came with an Audiovox 8 track player. Most old aftermarket shaft radios could have the posts moved to a different position to fit different bezels.

Hey, it comes with 8-track tapes, you can't lose for $30. The hours drive would be a nice cruise.

HA i just threw one out. seriously. my car originally came with one of those and the left side speaker output was blown on it. i replaced it with an original 72 AM/FM radio some years ago and had that sears in a box. just threw it out on monday finally.

it is kind of amusing thinking back like 10 years ago the first time i had turned the radio on in the car and got muffled noise from the right side of the car only
ahahhahaahah

I have the AM/Fm 8 Track that came in the Starsky and Hutch. I kept it just so I would have the original radio.
