Radio and speaker installation is complete! As previously mentioned, I found a 4" pair of JVC speakers for the doors and a matching pair of JVC 6 1/2" speakers for the rear deck.

The doors:

And the rear well:

What I ended up doing for the rear was to build a box 33" wide by 7 1/2" high by 5" deep, just enough to fit tight into the rear well under the rolled up top and frame. Covered it with cheap black automotive carpet and it looks like it's part of the car.  Other than the grilles being very modern looking, it doesn't look too bad if I say so myself.

The Retrosound Model One radio installed:

Oh, and the radio is chrome... for some reason I can't get a picture of it without it looking reddish brown. Reflecting off the interior, I suppose.

*EDIT* I was able to get a couple of pics in the sun yesterday and the radio and rear speakers pics are updated now.  Plus I figured out how to embed pics within the post :-)

Anyway, it looks very appropriate in the 1974 dashboard.
