    Where would I get replacements? I would love to get it working again, also the car has been converted to 12v, how should I hook it up to power? (it is currently hooked up to a few c-cells under the glovebox so it can light up)

    We recently got an original radio for our 1950 Studebaker off ebay, it currently doesn't work, tubes glow etc. but no sound at all.
    If you're at all handy with electronics, soldering, etc., you can make your radio work. What's happened is that all the old paper-type electrolytic capacitors have dried out. Re-cap the radio and you'll have sound again!

I checked the speaker, and it worked, so I wired in one of these (that my Aunt gave me) to use for now! http://www.spectraintl.com/xsp/SB2603.html It works very well, and I even wrapped a wire around its antenna and attached it to the car antenna which helps alot, but it cannot maintain a signal while driving, yet does okay sitting still.

    I put the stereo in the glove box and used the Sony wired remote mounted unobtrusively between the bucket seats.

    There is also a ribbon speaker that flush mounts so you don't have to cut any holes.
