Anybody re-pop 64 radio knobs and buttons?

Post by CosmicComets »

We are sending a factory AM radio in to get converted to AM/FM Bluetooth and now would be the time to replace the pitted chrome knobs and buttons. I found a set of Ford knobs that look close to original on Eckler's sight, but have not found replacement push buttons anywhere. Anybody know of a place that sells them? Thanks, Cary

Thanks, Barry. I think you are right. I find it hard to believe that there isn't enough demand to re-pop them. I am not even worried about being authentic, just nice and functional. You would certainly think that a Mustang must need new buttons, don't think there would be much difference.
Take care, Cary

For some reason I looked for them as well and couldn't find any. If you need another set that need chrome or a factory AM (junk) radio I have one and you would be welcome to it.

See Ya,
Mike

Mike, Thanks for the offer, but I should be OK. I sent the radio to R&B Vintage Radio in Tennessee. He actually had a core and will send his buttons off for chroming while my radio is still in transit. I need the radio back before the buttons if that's what it comes down to. There will be very limited space for installing it because of all the other electrics going in behind it. Take care, Cary
