I know this is an older thread, but how rare are these original radios for the trucks? Was at the Pleasanton Goodguys show and found one sitting on a swappers table, got it for $20.

Got a picture? If it's in fact a radio for a 48-50, then it's rare. I was at that swap meet too but was primarily selling. I only walked around once and had to do it quickly.

They are pretty rare. $20 is a very good price even if it doesn't work and is in rough but restorable condition. I've gotten decent looking ones at swapmeets for $5-10 but people selling them had no idea what they were from. If seller know what's he selling they'll usually be asking ~$100 for them. I paid $200 for a completely restored one about 15 years ago. 5-6 years ago even really rough ones were selling on eBay for $100+. The last one I sold on eBay, about a year ago, went for $50. It do.didn't work but was in good condition.

It's rough for sure, and I doubt it works. Figured even if it's complete garbage, just the brackets are worth the twenty I paid, and use them on a merc radio.

Unless you really want a working original radio I'd suggest you clean up the truck radio and use it to fill the hole in the dash. You can run I-Pod or some other electronic music device to play music. You can also have a place replace the original guts with new electronics to make it play AM/FM/USB device.

In the end it's the girlfriends call, as the truck is hers. I'm just helping along her journey.
