I've been waiting a long time for somebody to make this so I'm really excited to share it. I've seen people run Aux to the original radio, but this goes way beyond that. You can keep the looks of the stock radio, but with modern amenities like Bluetooth, Aux, and outputs for Amps and Subs. I posted the website and Youtube link to a Cadillac radio below.

This is excellent, Russ! Thanks for posting your results. I can't wait to get my radio done. I'm still using the CD player I put in my glove box years ago, but I've been itching to get my original radio converted to play music through my phone.

Somewhere there is an old post about my new converted original AM/FM radio. Works great, very happy with it. Today I finished hiding the accessory plugs to the radio.  Blue tooth connect button, usb port and my ipod jack.   I even replaced the cigar lighter with an accessory plug.

I'm going to do this I think. Once the Hearse leaves on Monday the 18th, I'm going to start ordering all kinds of goodies for the sedan.

1957-68 Cadillac Radio could off course work for you. Its a lot cheaper and fit right in, but the display is not looking stock.

There are more expensive choice from the same manufacturer as well. The more gadgets = higher price. 1964 Cadillac radio

We have a few guys here in Oz that do that as well..

Similar prices, and as you say, not cheap. I'm going to do ours one day, I just have to arrange that second mortgage on the house and sell a kidney and we're onto it.

I enquired about that on the YouTube video and was quoted 475.00 for basic AM/FM/Aux input four channels. Full everything 675.00 + shipping. It's expensive, but I'll definitely be looking into this for my car eventually.

That's pretty sweet. How much is the conversion?

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…


Another advantage of the Pertronix III

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
