Collector Car Audio
Auto Radio, Auto Audio, for antique and vintage vehicles!
Classic car collecting has become quite a popular hobby -- full of experts who can fix your engine, transmission, body, and upholstery, but what about the radio? Must you settle for an AM radio that's broken, a stereo jammed into the glove compartment, or worst of all, a cut-up dash with a modern stereo that ruins the car's appearance? There's a BETTER WAY!
For the sake of originality we can make your 70-year-old radio sing again. We can also make it receive your favorite FM stations without adding additional hardware, wiring, or speakers. If preferred we can completely change the radio into a full AM/FM stereo! We also offer new stereos designed to fit your dash, and even a totally hidden stereo with a wireless remote control. We have a complete line of products/services that fill every need and budget.
6/18/2013 The new FMR-1 Stereo Receivers are available in limited numbers -- and only days away from full production. We've performed several conversions and they are fabulous! If you're still waiting, pleaqse be patient. If you're considering sending a radio for conversion, our estimate at this time is around 30 days -- but it's just that, an estimate. No guarantees until the full production has commenced.
As for repairs, we are REALLY backed up. The problem is an unexpected number of prewar sets that typically take considerable time while clogging bench space. We're doing the best we can, but please -- be VERY patient with these. We're also getting a number of phone calls asking if we "got the radio/started on the radio/finished the radio/when will the parts come in/etc., etc., etc." We're happy to answer questions, but we also need to work on the radios! The phone calls that came in just yesterday created serious delays in production.
We are now the premier dealer for Aurora Design. They recently approached us and asked what products we wanted to see. We told them what we wanted, based on what our CUSTOMERS want, and the results are two new exciting products:
FMC-1 Digital FM Tuner PCB -- now you can have your cake and eat it too -- receive FM stations or listen to accessories on your original radio, without compromising the originality of the radio! FM adapters have been offered in the past, but none can hold a candle to this one in convenience, performance, or quality -- it is simply a fantastic product! Check this out -- this may be just what you're looking for!
NEW! Add FM to your existing radio!
FMR-1 receiver PCB -- for the full stereo conversion, this is a completely NEW design from the ground up. Tuning, both AM and FM, is vastly improved over previous products. The new class SB audio amp dissipates considerably less heat than previous designs. There is much more! The PCB's are coming in small numbers now, and in big numbers in a matter of days. ALL of our stereo conversions will now utilize the new FMR-1 design.

Personal Antique Radio Collection Gary Tayman has collected many vintage home radios over the years. While some are still future projects, many are totally rebuilt and are used daily! One cannot deny that the carved-wood art-deco styling, coupled with the warm glow of the tubes, provides a certain charm that simply cannot be duplicated by any of their modern counterparts.
