I used Aurora Design's conversion to AM, FM, MP3 (iPod), USB and Bluetooth 4 channel stereo on my 56 Dodge and have been happy:

Apparently there are cheaper add-on boxes out there (somewhere)(?)

Can you tell the difference in appearance?

this is the add on for our cars.

You can swap your internal also fairly easily, and cost runs probably 100$

here is the "empty version" with blue tooths...

Here is another simple solution... Some of these radio guys are like 600-800 for 50$ worth of hardware.

This guy sticks this radio in the glovebox, you could mount it behind the glove box, like a flap behind it to access later.

Use the remote and or your phone. I like the remote idea. (there are 100 of these)

kind of elaborate version, out of sight.

actually i like the "marine" guage radio in the glovebox. I can charge my phone from this also in the glovebox. You can hook a remote speaker for hands free on it also.

It runs pandora etc.

I really like the conversion that Denis does, but I don't want to have that LED display blocking the original radio face. Is it possible to mount the display remotely somewhere else?

I like that setup much better. Being able to turn off the display and make it look like a stock radio is really nice.

Will this work if my radio isn't in working order? the previous owner put a radio in and it doesn't work but I'd rather not hide or put an ugly radio in. I have a 56 savoy

He's gonna rip out all the guts to the radio anyway. I believe that the only thing that needs to work are the tuning knobs, and the movement to the dial indicator.

I can confirm that. Mine was completely frozen with rust and he did an awesome job!
