Hello All,

I am restoring a Ford 120 circa 1968 to it's original state.  Back then you could order an a.m radio option which was an a.m. radio that mounted on the hood.  It was a metal box with a radio in it and a speaker.  Please let me know if anybody has one or knows where to get one.  I believe they were made in a factory in Ohio.

I think all the radios for the tractors & garden tractors were made by the BENDIX Company.
