A couple of months ago we installed a RetroSound Zuma radio on our ’67 Mustang Convertible. The Zuma’s vintage look with modern features makes a great choice for your classic Mustang. RetroSound’s now taking that one step further with their new Model Two radio, the first classic car stereo specifically designed to work with your iPod or your iPhone. This radio has all the features you’d expect in a modern stereo, yet it’s specifically designed to fit your classic Mustang.
The Model Two radio features a vintage pushbutton design and is available with either a black or a chrome surround. It has a four-channel 100-watt amplifier, as well as an AM/FM tuner with 30 presets built in. They’re patented InfiniMount system allows it to fit in pretty much any classy Mustang you would like. It includes a microphone for Bluetooth use, two auxiliary inputs, two USB inputs, and pre-outs for both your front, rear, and subwoofer amplifiers.
RetroSound includes all the hardware necessary to install their InfiniMount system. Both the speaker and the power plug also disconnect making for an easy installation. You’ll need to order the knob and bezel kit to fit your specific year mustang. In our case we have the bezels and knobs for a ’64 through ’66, which we’ll be installing in our Weekend Wrench project car.
A RetroSound radio has so many features that it’d be impossible to cover everything. We’re going to show you a few of the details that make the RetroSound unique. As you can see the display is constantly changing colors. You can pick any one you want to keep with or you can leave it on random like this where it will constantly scroll through the different colors.
Now we’re going to turn it on. When you turn it on it is going to go to the last source that you used. In our case we had our iPod hooked up to our USB connection. It’s going to pick up right where it was playing last. It can tell you the track, the time into the track, as well as the artist, the name of the song, and what album it’s on. You can control your iPod right from your radio now and change tracks. You can also pause the iPod. You can also shuffle it.
Now we’re going to show you how to use the Bluetooth feature. You’re going to click source up here until you see Bluetooth audio. That way it’ll transmit anything Bluetooth from your phone through the stereo with no wires. Use that for Spotify, Pandora, or just internet music as well. It also allows us to make hands free phone calls as well. Once you make a phone call it’s going to mute the stereo and you’re going to hear the phone through your speaker.
Rick: Thanks for calling CJ Pony Parts. This is Rick.
Bill: Hey Rick, its Bill. We’re just checking out the features on the new Model Two radio. How do we sound?
Rick: You sound very clear.
Bill: Cool, thank you very much.
Rick: Yep, have a good day.
Okay, as soon as we disconnect our call our music is going to come right back on. The beauty of the Model Two radio is it allows it to use all the modern technology found in your new stereo, yet still keep that vintage look and installs in the dash without any modifications. Installation will take you around two hours, so you’ll be back on the road in no time.
