Looking for a 70 Cuda radio delete panel
« on: May 19, 2017 - 05:10:58 pm »
Looking for a radio delete panel for my 70 Cuda. Must be near perfect. Reproduction from Canada is fine. Please reply with pics and price.

Thanks
Daryl

Me too.

 I purchased one off of Ebay for ridiculous cash.  I think it was like 350.00.  Perfect though. 

Funny thing is they put these on lots of cars back then.   As I am told most people would buy them radio delete and then install an aftermarket radio as they were better than factory at the time.    (wasn't there yet)

It took me several years to actually find one to purchase.  Occasionally you will see a reproduction surface.

Found one for $325 which is balls high IMO. Might not have a choice. Saw a nice one sell on ebay in February for $150. Wish i would have caught that one.

Does anyone have a pic?
Why can't you mod a radio panel?  Fill in with fiberglass or similar?

There is a fella over on mofarts that does reproductions using regular radio plates.
Still pretty pricey.  Have not seen one listed for quite a while though.

That looks easy to make, no way I'd pay $300 for that.

Ace hardware has a textured paint I used to "touch up"my plastic dash pieces and my seat backs.  It's not exact but pretty damn close and very reasonably priced.

I made my own for my 70 Challenger. It may not have looked 100% correct but it cost about $20 to make.
