Hello Kkarrer  If I remember correctly GM used the same radios from 59to 64 by just changing the face plates .If possible place the radios side by side too see if they match up . The face plate bolt holes should be the same even if the faces are different .Have patience changing them over as internal parts are delicate .The radio repair book is a great help on these radios for repairing problems.

Does the radio itself work?  I've got a couple 61 radios lying around somewhere that don't play but I think the switches are good. Could always swap them out.

Hello members .I have tried chevy/Pontiac conduits on 61-64 Cadillacs .They do not fit as caddys are larger than chevy/pont,,due to extra wiring and vac hoses for locks when  equipped .Cadillac conduits are 1/2" larger in diameter . Not sure about olds/buick as I have not found a set too try.

If anyone needs a front T/S lens, Ken did not end up needing it.

Thanks. My 61 radio's antenna switch is not working and I have access to a 59 so I was hoping to just switch them out. The antenna is fine and the wiring and fuse are ok so I'm down to the radio shaft switch.

Many thanks, Carl! ( @Clewisiii )

The clips were in the mail yesterday. Thank you for your kind words, too!

I picked up the pieces at the shop and will be starting over from square #1. They made a few, but the top did not have the correct finish, and they screwed up the locking feature. It doesn't snug up the clip to the rad support.

Hi Russ,

I am sorry to hear that this went wrong. Nevertheless I appreciate your dedication to that topic! Hopefully you get more lucky on second try.
