    How have any of you put in a modern cd player in a 62 hawk? I do not want to get rid of the existing radio and would like to keep the dash as is. What have you done?

    Good question. I have the same problem and intend to build an under dash enclosure to hold a Clarion that will not fit in the glove box. An even bigger problem is where to put speakers without cutting. My Hawk has a speaker opening in the centre of the rear package shelf. A sound shop suggested I use only one rear speaker there and hook up either right or left. They suggested I put one front speaker in the dash under the existing Stude radio and build another into the under-dash enclosure I am devising for the stereo unit.I too would would appreciate other options.

    Regards,
    John

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

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

                            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. 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.
