A friend of mine recently tried to install a Bendix radio in his 1962 Impala. He's having a hard time making it fit in place of the Delco radio that was in there before.
I can't help him, so I was wondering if somebody out there can tell me why? I do know that there are differences in the
design of the case and front bezels, but I need to know exactly why the Bendix won't fit and what if anything can be done to make it fit. This info would be most helpful to me also as I might have to take the radio back, as I sold it to him so I can tell whoever else may buy it what to expect. Also, is there
any difference in the mounting holes, etc. between the '61 and '62 dashboards and would the aluminum trim on his Impala dash make any difference as far as clearance, etc.?
The biggest problem he's having is that the shafts for the knobs stick out too far and he can't shim them right for a proper fit. Any help on this will be much appreciated!!

Should anyone be interested in buying the Bendix or know of someone who might, please let me know! Question
