General Discussions / Re: 59 radio in 61?
« Last post by Dan LeBlanc on Today at 07:04:34 PM »
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.

I don't believe so. The face font and curvature on the face plate would be two issues that would stand out right off the bat.

I want to get a complete extra set of the door armrest chrome plates and the stainless trim above the carpet flaps. My chrome is in poor shape since it was stored with the windows cracked open. There is a line of pits where the water and dust dropped in. And one of my stainless strips had most of its barns broken off.

Unfortunately not that part. They are very delicate and I am parinoid. I spent a long time trying to remove them without kinks or scratches. There is a Fleetwood parts car 4 hours away from me in Ohio.  I need to take a drive down and buy all itís door panels. Then I will have extras.
