The MP3 sound is from YouTube Falcon Drag Car audios.
This Conversion is for cheapskates, chiselers and rednecks.

Pyle PLR22MPF conversion. Station selector buttons modified to hit contact switches for radio functions, finger pulls removed, sand blast ectched graphics. Both shaft controls fully functional. USB/SD AUX ports, AM/FM and clock set on the side of the radio, under dash access. Display leads extended with ribbon cable.

$30 radio, $500 labor to convert it. Not making these for anyone, just estimated work involved.

Probably about the same internal component quality as an overpriced RetroSound, without the cheap plastic look.

I love it great job and some nice fab work! To me keeping the vintage look of the dash just looks so much better then hacking it up to fit in an newer style radio that just looks out of place in these vintage cars. :thumbup: :nod:
A bad day Drag Racing is still better than a good day at work!

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

I always thought that the best sound comes out of the tailpipe(s). Engine on Radio off.
