Garret make sure you get a 58 Type the 57 fit the same but are not as good . You need Model 853 for a standard 58 type 5 button radio . east way tio tell is a 57 has like a fluted power pak on the back , where as the 58 doesn't .
The radio should be stamped model 853 anyway . Model 846 is a standard 57 type

Chances are they don't work anymore...the electrolytic capacitors in them have long ago dried up. And even if they work, a capacitor could fail at any time, which could take out a tube or the output transistor. It's best to service it before installation in your car.
