will this radio fit
#1
I currently have an AM/FM cassette player (shaft style), I have the original AM radio, I have a chance to buy an AM/FM 8-track from the late 70's early 80's.
will it fit, or will it need to be modified at all?
I can work around the wiring, but having it fit is what I want to make sure of first.

Don, thats what I was worried about.
what I really want is just AM/FM radio Stock looking, and from a year with 4 speaker output, and I can then use a FM modulator to use my MP3 player,
here are the pictures of the one with the 8-track.

Hard to tell from the picture but it looks like it might fit, I have an orig Mustang AM w/ optional Mustang FM converter, also a Mustang AM/FM stereo and a vintage period correct aftermarket AM/FM 8 Track Stereo in my collection and they all fit the 71-73 stock bezel. That one you picture may fit as well Measure the distance between the knobs and l x w of the display area to compare to your orig bezel

what is the "optional Mustang FM converter" does it connect to the AM radio? was it a Ford option?

Yes it was a tiny fm unit that plugged onto the antenna then the plug from it plugged into the radio, it says MUSTANG on it.

I bought it from a Mustang collector who said he got it from a retired Ford dealer, he said it could be purchased back then if you only had an AM but later decided you wanted FM also
