  • Electrical: What is radio?

    What's this radio fit ???

    When I pull this way you out my 50 champion it was obvious that it didn't go with it. Considering I was held up by bungee cords wires and straps. The speaker in no way lined up with the grill on the dash.

    Probably an Aftermarket Radio designed to fit some other Make. A Studebaker Radio would be a Philco.

    That is not to say though, that this Radio if working or repairable, could not be properly installed in a '47 to '52 Stude. and work.

      I mentioned this radio in a picture Matt posted earlier. It is an aftermarket radio made by the Automatic Radio company. It's possible that, if the so called "radio delete" plate is removed from the dash, this radio might fit.

      Closer examination of the picture suggests that it might be an aftermarket radio to fit a 51-52 Chevrolet dash.

        I take it your saying the 1 1/2" part on the lower part of the dash is removed when a factory radio is installed.

          If this "Panel" is removable without cutting, then obviously that IS what it is for.

            Yes. If you look straight up from under the dash, there are two 1/4-20 screws that hold the panel in place. With that removed, the factory radio fits the dash. An aftermarket radio could fit there, but it seems likely that your radio is for a 51-52 Chevrolet.

            Here's a picture of a stock 51-52 Chevrolet radio for comparison. Look at the styling of the dial. That downward curve on each end of the dial is unique to 51-52 Chevrolet.

            Look at the placement of the dial, the knobs, and the speaker relative to each other. They are the same on your aftermarket radio and the Chevrolet radio.
