    Default AM/FM radio installation question???????

    I just bought a 260 AM/FM radio on ebay. ($25) I know it will not bolt into a '71 (2/71) but what do I need to do to install it in my Z? Once I have taken the faceplate off, it looks a lot like my AM radio. It does not have the antennae switch but I think I can mount that onto this radio. Anyone played with their radio lately? I need some ideas on putting this radio into my Z. I appreciate your comments.

    I'm not sure on this since I've not dealt with 240z's/260z's lately but didn't the 260 have a rocker switch mounted in the console for the antenna? In the wide slot to the right just ahead of the shifter?

    I believe you are correct. I think I can mount the same switch for the antennae on the radio face plate just like the 240 has. This switch is not a part of the radio, per se. I am thinking of taking the radio out of the 240 and putting the AM/FM radio in its place. The antennae switch should mount just like it does on the 240 radio faceplate. How about the mount for the radio. Surely someone has taken their radio out a few times. Anyone?
