Beautiful color! Congratulations and welcome to the forum!

Easiest way to "upgrade" your Becker is to use a cassette bluetooth adapter: https://www.amazon.com/HEIBAIGE-iTap...dapter+for+car


They work great.

Totally surprised also, hopefully they don't torch the wrong Car! I have considered several banners for my Back Window all of which I cant parade around in public with though.

I scored on the Plates.. it is non operative for 10years or probably longer the tags on the plates were expired in December 1989? not sure how they did that? DMV surprises me all the time.

The sign does say to take the Alt route. Maybe she is already on it?

I was about to add something, but stopped myself. This forum is non-political, isn't it? Good thing too!

PS: Great looking car. Must be great to be able to find low mileage examples like that that are still somewhat affordable.

Political = emotional. A good reason to avoid either in a forum filled with people of common interest.

Congrats on the car... A great specimen, and your location is a great place to enjoy it.. Taking a cruise on a nice day along the 17 Mile Drive must be sublime.

I don't think there is anything wrong with pulling out the Becker and putting a modern radio in the car... Just hold onto the Becker for future reinstallation or heirloom needs.. At least that is what I have done with mine..

Agree with that.

The 560SL is the youngest of 107s. 16 years younger than my 72. It will be a long time before anyone worries about originality of our radios. (I put a nice Sony in my car along with better speakers. Finding one that is not garish and that has simple controls takes some research! So perhaps an upgrade to Becker would be another option?

I think someone may have suggested it, but you can have Becker modified to accept aux input and in some case Bluetooth streaming.
They also have complete radio systems for the 107 that use original radios.
Nice car - enjoy it!

I think to agree with you it will be a long time before it is close to selling it for profit, I have looked at these threads with great interest, seems like the sky is the limit to what can be done along with your wallet to have the means. My history of keeping cars long enough to make my investments worth while are long gone... its almost a hobby but an expensive one at that. I am hoping that I will stay the course and enjoy this roadster for awhile. I think i am leaning towards the Continental German Replacement seems to have all updates that I am looking for and will probably work with my local guy on the Speakers situation, that part is just so overwhelming trying to determine which is the best for a small 4" diameter front replacement and how far one needs to go to actually benefit from the modifications to the rear for higher quality sound. I looked into the Becker options as well and almost feel its better to just replace than modify.
