Re: interchange for a 1973 Vette radio

Corvette radios were unique in size and shape up to 1976. While they looked somewhat similar from '68 up to other GM cars, the distance on the controls
was wider and the radio was much short (not as deep). In '77, they redesigned the dash so that a conventional sized radio could fit, to reduce costs associated with a specially made radio. This allowed the AM/FM, AM/FM stereo, and the AM/FM Stereo with 8 track to be available, which had been available in other GM cars for several years.
So the answer, none.
The only options you have are: 1. Corvette radio '68-'76 2. custom radio design, such as those available from many Corvette vendors like Mid America, Eckler's, etc. 3. Cutting the dash to fit a modern radio

Here is another option if you might want, to keep the original look of your dash but have a modern audio unit.

This company will take your original unit and replace the innards with a 180 watt digital stereo receiver with connectability for a remote CD changer and XM radio. The unit retains and uses all of the original knobs and buttons. Cost for the conversion, $399.
I plan to go this route to replace the POS Custom auto sound unit in my '65.
Does anyone have a clean non-working stereo for a '65 that they would like to get rid of?
