Here's a link to what Eric is talking about: CLICK HERE They are really inexpensive and come in a lot of colors.

i looked at the link you posted and i do see how inexpensive they are bujt here is my question where is the cutout for the speakers do you have to cut out or what???

Every speaker has it's own shape depending on what you decide to use, so I would think you'd want to cut out the holes for them yourself.

You'll have to cut the speaker holes yourself, as the trays come solid. Most cars from that era didn't have rear speakers, just the one in the front of the dash. Aftermarket speakers and stereo installations was a big business back then, that is where Pioneer, Alpine and Rockford-Fosgate made their names

Factory engineered 4 speaker sound systems didn't become a standard on cars until the mid to late 1980's

ok thank you and how does it come out i havent really had the chance to look at it so i dont really know

You may have to take out the rear seat to get at it, but then it should come right out.

Factory engineered 4 speaker stereo systems were available by the mid '60s. They may not have been standard equipment, but all the car companies offered them. My brother ordered a brand new '65 Dodge Coronet convertible that had a reverberator as part of the system he ordered with the car. My brand new '72 Dodge Charger came with a 4 speaker stereo system that even had a cassette deck with it.
