Eh... doesn't look very old to me. I forget who sells it, but there was a company that did a vintage-look stereo and it looked almost EXACTLY like the stereo they based it off of.

A car is a hole in the air, suspended there by four rubber doughnuts which you can not eat.
Into this hole, you throw money, which you will never see again.

Why did it take so long? And why don't more companies do it?!

Anyone have a picture of one in an early Z with factory faceplate? If so, any problems mounting the antenna power switch?

Stereos like this have been around a long time.

The big selling point used to be that they could control a CD Changer.

Hi guys, thanks for checking out our radios, Motorsports was one of our first customers and they carry our Retrobelt products and our radios. Our radio is not like Custom Autosound (which is the other main brand out there) our radio has movable shafts you can adjust any way you want (you could put them both on the left if you wanted to--- ) our Datsun kits come with a template you can make your own with --- our new radios are all shipping with Metal knobs (no one does that) and rear USB (19" cable) which is for flash drive use only ---

Here's a good video for you to check out: http://www.retrosoun...o/details/id/11

and here's all about our radio:

Our new Model One radio has 2 aux inputs, IR remote, and if you want to hide the radio, an IR input (optional 94" cable available) ---

I'll let our website speak for itself, we do also sell to Crutchfield, Jegs, Eckler's, Moss Motors US & UK--- LMC (their Datsun divison & british car division too!)

Thanks for checking out the products can keeping the thread alive!, you guys need anything, just holler!

Thanks,

Michael Robbins

I find Custom Autosound radios to be much better than Retrosound.  They come with a two year warranty instead of a one year.  They also have a radio that has built in bluetooth for less money.  Aesthetically, you can get radios with actual Ford, Chevy, etc logos on them.
