The retro sound stereo has a 1.5" X 3.5" face if that helps. Wondering if like Red Mercury was saying, there would be enough to cut out of the 67 plate to make it work.

I'd just get a later 68-72 adapter face plate that way you could always go back if you want to.

99.9% sure it works. It's been a while since I picked up two of them so I can't actually remember if I tested both. I think I did just can't remember. Mine is bolted in with the security bracket and all so there's no way I'm going in to try to test anything.

I also have one with no pushbuttons if anyone is interested in it. All 3 came out of F100s.

Post Old radio electronics thoughts

Hooking up an old radio, that worked at one time, can fry it.
Here are some old radio electronics thoughts:

Electrolytic Capacitors (little cans) get old and dry out. Hot climates are worse. If the end is pushed out, that is a bad sign. If one pops or shorts out, it can do a lot of damage to the rest of the radio. These can be replaced with new ones, cheaply, or even solid types that will last. Maybe $10 in parts. A small, hot, soldering iron is needed, and a bit of practice first. Ask a HAM for help.

You might want to use the minimum fuse rating, in a fast-blow style for protection.

Further, you might want to add a "Transorb" across the feeds for some extra protection from surges. This cheap component will begin bleeding the excess volts across a zener diode and resistor to hold the input volts to a benign value. I think a 14v transorb would do it. They handle minute surges of very high voltages, but not sustained amps, like a fuse.
If there is interest, I'll dig out a part number. They are less than a buck. Put it just before the input to the radio 12v feed, and across the 12v/neg leads (like black/red).

Luck with yours.
Kevin
