Restoring Vintage Automobile Radios with Petrolicious
It’s hard enough restoring old cars. Finding discontinued engine parts, interiors or other components can be a hassle. Even after the most detailed restorations, many enthusiasts find themselves without an essential piece to complete their vehicles: a time-correct radio. Petrolicious, who specializes in finding unique vintage cars, got the opportunity to speak with Lino Carini, an Italian car professional whose passion for antique automobile radios informs a now expert opinion. Carini walks Petrolicious through a history of Voxson, Phillips and Autovox’s masterfully-crafted car radios. This includes Voxson’s rear-view mirror radio, which was also one of the first to use transistor technology upon its initial release.
