  • 61 Lark Radio

    Hi, For my 61 Lark W model deluxe, It did not come with a radio, if I wanted to put a radio in it (Original) is the wiring in place to do this?

    No real wiring to do, just the hot wire to the fuse panel and one speaker wire. (ground the other)

      Only wiring is a green wire with inline fuse that goes from the radio to the "acc" terminal of the ignition switch. should come with radio. the speaker plugs directly into the back of the radio. if you have no radio at all and your car never had one make sure you get both the radio and speaker. you'll also need to get an antenna and it is much easier if you can find a good used original one as the factory location involved drilling a hole through both the driver's side fender and the cowl sheetmetal directly below it. Most aftermarket antennas do not have a long enough threaded portion to mount in the factory location.

      good luck,

      nate

            Thanks for the all the help. Is there some technology where a hidden antenna is available? I would ate to put a hole in my fender, the car originally did not have a radio..
