Here is the shortest 1955 Thunderbird radio you are likely to see!
Classic Car Radio Doctor
So how did it get this way? HINT: When you are going to have an after-market A/C system installed in your car, its best to have it done after the radio is in place !
The space where the radio was to go was now partially occupied by ductwork. The radio was returned to me and I had to rearrange parts and cut the body to make it fit in the available space. The radio had already been converted to AM/FM!
This was not easy to accomplish but it got done.
