This radio is designed to look exactly like the AM-FM radio that was available to both 65 and 66 Mustangs back then. I'm not cracking on this radio, as I have one in my 65 and they do look nice. If you don't have an original AM-FM like GT 289, this is the closest you can come to that original look. I have the iPod jack and that works really well for me. Many have complained about the quality of these radios, but I've had one in my Mustang for almost 4 years with no problems. I also purchased a dual voice coil speaker for my dash speaker mount (I bought from VA Classic Mustangs) and I'm satisfied with the sound. That speaker is probably the best you will be able to do without mounting additional speakers elsewhere in the car. You can get the USA 66 radios and the dual voice coil speakers from most Mustang parts vendors.

Thanks folks. Ordering it tonight. 15% off this week.
Since you have a coupe, I strongly recommend you get the 6x9 dual voice coil rear speaker and repro rear speaker grille. Then connect both left channels of the radio to the front speaker, and both right channels to the rear. You'll be very happy.
