67 F-100 radio

Does anyone know where I can buy a reproduction radio that looks like the original radio that came with the 67 F-100.... or is there a person that sells the old radios?


Or is there such a thing as a fake radio cover, that looks like you have an old radio, but is just a cover... hiding the modern radio underneath?

This was what I put in my 71 am, fm cd flash drive port , the 67 had a much smaller face dial then the later yrs. But people looking in think it's stock
Got it from Classic sound

They upgraded these ratios since when, I got mind with face plug ins, I-pads and Blue tooth & s flash drive on side of face an so on.

My flash drive port is on a plug about 18" long that feeds in to my glove box out of sigh.

I have had the same problem. I can't find anything to upgrade to a better radio in my 1967 F100 since the 1967's were one year only. The radio opening in the dash is just too small to install anything else (Like orich already mentioned). I do have the following link to Classic Auto Radio Service, their website claims they can convert your existing AM radio to FM, iPod/XM, likely other inputs as well. I have never contacted them so I don't know if they do good work, but likely very expensive.

You could fit your 67 with 68-72 radio adapter dash plate with min re working the dash opening and use the later radio adapter plate.

Not like some guys blucher the dash up and push in a cd players.

I know re-working the dash for the 68 plate is an option. Would re-working the 67 trim plate be an option? Or would there not be enough material left after making the face fit? I also have a 67 I'd like to put one of the RetroSound/classic audio stereos in.

Yeah what every works for you. They are made from soft pot medal so Dermel cutting wheel should be used. Or if you can find a nice chrome 70's one at the JY.

Yeah, I know that there are some ways to make a modern radio fit but I don't want to cut up the original opening unless I really have to. I like upgrades but I also like to be able to undo the upgrades and go back to original. Once I start to cut the radio opening then you are committed.

Frosty67: I don't think that re-working an original faceplate would work, but some one might have figured out a way. It is pretty small and doesn't have much area to work with.

Does anyone actually have a picture of a 1967 F100 with a retrofitted radio? Maybe someone has done it?

Yeah, I was worried about the amount of material to work with. I was comparing measurements of the face of the retro audio and it might just fit, but the spacing of the ***** might be an issue. With so much real estate taken up by the face the ***** may not function correctly. Maybe there's a better option?

I have the retrosound in my 66 Mustang and in my 55 Chevy, the head of the radio is pretty small, and then you buy the faceplate and ***** to fit your application. The arms are completely adjustable, it's a pretty slick setup. I didn't use it in my 69 F100 because it was easy enough do the upside down Volvo faceplate and use a regular stereo.
