Is there anybody restoring the factory radios? I heard Wards no longer are doing it.

I have a contact here in Michigan that restores them to factory or also does modern upgrades (bluetooth, USB input jack etc.) PM me and I will provide contact info. Joe

Devin Duke does my electrical rebuilds on various things. When I get around to taking the radio out I’m sending it to him. Mines an AM, but I remember asking him about if he had a core am/fm or maybe I’d get one to send. So pretty sure he could help you.


I want my fair share

There's at least 15 ads in the classified section of Hemmings Motor News for radio repair/restoration. The August issue is over 350 pages, 70 pages of articles and the rest classified ads. Three pages of ads for Plymouth cars, parts, and services for sale, and about the same for Dodge. Another four pages of Chrysler Mopar parts and services.

I believe the Heaterbox folks do radios as well. Can't think of their full name right now.

If you're thinking about Mr Heaterbox / Premium Dash Decals in Canada here's their website. Scroll to the bottom and under "Much More Than Parts" you'll see "Radio Restorations".

Dan, I’ve used this guy for a couple of radio related restos, including speaker re-coning. Good service and price and he is well versed in maintaining originality.
