I have several 1957-1958 Chrysler radios, in varying conditions including at least 1 very nice working one. Have 4 or 5 available. I want to trade one for a nice 57-58 Desoto radio.

57-58 Desoto radios are very popular on ebay and go very cheap. If you have a Chrysler 7 pushbuttons I'm interested.

Garrett, I have a standard five button model for a '57-58. Chrome is pretty decent with only a few very small pits. It plays, but the
dial slips a little.

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

If anyone needs one repaired, I can do that. Take advantage of the 25% dollar exchange with Canuckistan right now. :D

You mean instructions beyond wiring up a 4 ohm speaker, inserting the antenna cable, grounding the chassis, and giving it power?

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.

Yes, I'm pretty sure that's what it was designed for.
