There is a company that makes replacement radios for classic cars that look like old style AM/FM radios that the car came with. The face plate pops down and you have a cd player. The beauty of these is they fit in the exact holes of the old radio and even have the branding and everything. My buddie has a '56 nomad and you would swear it only has an AM radio by looking at it and low and behold it plays FM and CD's.
Can't remember the name of the company that sell this stuff but search the web for classic car radios maybe that will help. There maybe an ad in Hemmings Motor News as well.
I have seen some of the new shaft style radios that are chrome and look like they are for an old car. The problem is that they are garbage, they are mostly based on cheap Kenwood models.
Another nice radio I saw is Joe's classic car radio. He puts a modern unit in the case of your old radio. http://www.joesclassiccarradio.com/
I wanted an older high end vintage radio. I just needed to know how good the older Alpines are or Nakamichis and which models to look at.
Driving a Rolls Royce you should not go for less than the McIntosh MX406, MCD4000 and MDA5000.
And for fun put that blue McIntosh glow in your Rolls by adding the MPM4000.
Did the Rolls however make you see the bottom of your moneypitt you can always go for the Clarion HX-D2.
Have fun in your Rolls.
TD-1200 was the first generation TD-1200
TD-1200 mk II corrected some of the 1200 issues -- cannot remember what they were, but the 1200 mk II is prefered.
TD-1200SE as indicated in an earlier thread has an Aux input and reported better preamp section. All these decks show up from time to time on Ebay, but be forewarned that they are all now in the 20 year old range and were finicky when they were brand new, even. They are definitely a piece for the enthusiast. The FM was not very good, but the cassette section was fantastic.
