    Hey there, I'm looking to get some info on how to mount the lower portion of the radio. It's for the 53 chev p'up and I guess it would be the same for the 47- 53 trucks. I have no Idea and would love to hear how they are mounted. Are the brackets available, what did you use if you fab one up, etc. Thanks

    Try this site:http://chevy.tocmp.com/index.htm

    Lots of good stuff there.
    I have a 53 truck, but the dash looks like it was cut out with a hatchet to fit a cb in there.

    mine has the radio delete but it would be above the heater and out the dash at about a 45 degree angle centered 3 inches from the windsheild.

    There are 2 holes in the bottom lip of the dash that correspond with 2 threaded straps attached to the bottom of the radio. Fab up a couple of spacers to take up the gap and bolt it down. I'm getting ready to pull mine out right now because it quit working today (not the fuse). Any one know of a good repair shop for these original radios? Thanks, Nick
