Re: Radio for 52 packard

1951 and 1952 Packard radios didn't really have bezels as such. The radio dial projected through a close-fitting rectangular opening in the dash while the two knobs simply stuck through the recessed holes with a small chrome bowl-like piece behind each one. Point is, there are no aftermarket radios that are even close to this configuration must less with the wide spacing that the 1951-1952 radios used.
That said, your best bet would be to find a stock radio, then send it out to one of the companies that retrofits old radios to modern innards. That way you'll have the best of both worlds: a radio that matches the car and one that has modern technology.
