This is a 1955 Ford radio that has been converted to stereo. The appearance as viewed from the passenger compartment remains original, with all controls functioning as designed. Inside, the chassis which contained the tubes and transformers has been removed and replaced with a new, modern digital stereo receiver and 180 watt RMS 4 speaker amplifier. The original antenna connection and all “up front” controls are retained. The original mounting is still in place so it goes back in the car the same way it came out. A tiny LED has been embedded in the dial background that indicates status by changing colors for various conditions. AM is red, FM is green. It also functions as a tuning indicator, changing from dim to bright when a station of sufficient strength is tuned in. The LED also changes from green to yellow when the receiver locks on an FM stereo station. There are 4 BTL amplifiers capable of delivering 45 watts RMS each - that’s 180 watts RMS maximum output power! (14.4 Volts, 4 ohm load, 1 kHz). Radios can be configured for 1, 2, 3, or 4 speakers if powered from a 12 volt system. 1 speaker (mono) systems are recommended where adding a second speaker is not desirable or practical. When the balance control is set all the way to the right channel and the fader control is set to the front, the radio will enter the mono mode. CDs and/or XM radios will also be in mono. If more speakers are added later, stereo operation will automatically be restored when the balance control is adjusted.
