So this might be a little different and maybe not even possible. My brother found this old cassette deck at a garage sale and I'd love to add it to my G10. I am not sure where to start. Can I just splice the wiring into the car stereo harness? Here are some pics...I;d love to have this in my van because I have a cassette collection and what sounds better than tape!?

The "D" plug is ground, top & bottom I would say are speaker & the right round would be 12V.

How would I go about wiring it ? I have a newer style deck in it already that I'd like to keep and use with the cassette deck.

Wow. A "Laugh-a-lot". That's what we called them. If you are hell bent on getting it to work, there's a place in Redondo beach that restores units like this. They did a 8 track player for my Bonneville.


Tucson-it's a dry heat...like an oven
