Classic Car Radio Restorations, FM and Bluetooth Conversions

We perform full cosmetic & electronic, or electronic-only restorations on vintage / antique car radios, right here in Sacramento. This means that we restore factory Chevy, Ford, Chrysler, DeSoto, Dodge, Imperial, Mercury, Cadillac, Buick, and other factory electronics as an option to full FM conversion.

Our FM conversions will add modern convenience and reliability to your auto radio, while keeping the authentic ‘factory’ look; conversions take advantage of factory tuning mechanism and front panel controls and include digital FM and AM reception, as well as auxiliary audio inputs for external CD and MP3 players which come standard.

 The FMR-2.5 Platform

The FMR 2.5 completely replaces all of the factory AM or AM/FM tube or solid state electronics in the radio, and interfaces directly with your original tuner and volume/tone controls. Standard features include stereo AUX inputs and 4x45W at 4 ohm power output.

Optional features include: SUB out, LINE out, and Bluetooth interface and a USB port and are available at respective price tiers.  Conversions using the BT or BTU Options allow your wireless music device (iPhone/iPod, Mobile Phone or MP3 Player) to be controlled through the radio’s own knobs. This means you can scan through your music library as if you are tuning the radio. Hands free calling via discreet built-in mic (or external clip on mic if your radio does not have a suitable location for a built-in) standard on all bluetooth conversions.

Basic AM/FM/Aux conversions start at just $375. Additional options such as Bluetooth and USB functionality are available at additional cost. Prices include return shipping to the continental U.S. We take a $100 deposit to get started on any Basic conversion, and a $250 deposit to get started on either Bluetooth-tier conversion. Sorry, we do not ship internationally.

Turnaround: 14-18 days on most radios. Heavily optioned radios may require additional time.
