    This is going to sound stupid , but is there a player that will fit in the dash of an 83 without modifications to the dash ?

    No, not a CD player, installation isn't hard though, all you do is take the metal sleeve provided witht he CD playe for DIN installation and hold it old to the radio area and mark the outside edges the cut out the platic and metal with a cutting wheel, then clean up the edges... Then slide sleeve in and bend tabs to hold in. Then slide the CD player in... WHAM! you're done.. hehe

    Hey fellow 6.2 man,

    I would recommend getting a CD player from Crutchfield, provided that you WANT to do modifications to the dash. If you decide that you want to, the customer service there is really good, and they give very good instructions on how to install a CD player. I know, because I put one into my '84. It also comes with all the accessories listed above, that I had no idea were sold separately. Anyway, just some advice. If you don't want to cut (or if you don't want anyone to cut for you) several good brands make a shaft-style cassette reciever. Anyway, I hope this helps a little bit.

    You could also buy an FM modulator disc changer that wires directly into your stock deck and is operated by remote control. That way you don't alter the factory appearance of your dash but still get CD tunes........I'm not positive how these systems work, but I know that some classic car guys use these to keep their cars stock.
