    The RetroSound Wonderbar Radios are designed to emulate the original Chevrolet radio introduced in 1957. Today we take for granted that there was a time when auto-seek did not exist on a car radio. Tuning to your favorite station or finding a radio signal while traveling required the constant attention of a passenger. The original Wonderbar radio introduced a simple way for the driver to press the Wonder Bar and the radio would find the first radio station that had a clear broadcast signal for your location. This was a revolutionary design sixty years ago and finding a functional example to restore your classic today is becoming increasingly harder. On top of that the original Wonderbar radio is very limited in it's functionality and until now the only way to upgrade was to cut a large rectangular hole in the dash or mount a second radio in the glove box or under the seat. RetroSound has the perfect solution allowing you to upgrade to modern
    technology and keep the classic look of the original Wonderbar radio.

    The RetroSound Wonderbar Radios are the first radios made to fit your 1949-1965 GM classic car with SiriusXM-Ready capability, it connects directly without the need for special adapters or cables to the SiriusXM SXV-300V1 vehicle tuner (sold separately, subscription for service is required). Compact in size, the SiriusXM SXV-300V1 can easily be installed behind the dash for a fully integrated appearance. The Wonderbar features a fully functional Wonder Bar. On the surface, it seems to operate similarly to the original. Unlike the original, the Wonder Bar on RetroSound's radio can seek forward or backward depending on which side of the Wonder Bar the driver presses – press it on the left, and it seeks backward; press it on the right to seek forward. You can use the Wonder Bar to tune up and down on the radio, SiriusXM or select from today's digital music sources and wireless Bluetooth enabled devices.

    Similar to other RetroSound radios the Wonderbar allows iPod/iPhone direct control and charging via USB input, and also built-in Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone calls and wireless audio streaming. The AM/FM Tuner with Radio Display System (RDS) can also display artist and title information on the display screen. The Wonderbar is the perfect centerpiece for you to build a complete car audio system with a built-in MOSFET power amplifier delivering 25 watts x 4 channel RMS and if you want more power external amplifiers can be added using the front and rear RCA pre-outs, and a separate subwoofer output.

    The Wonderbar classic car radio offers flexible mounting options with the Patented "InfiniMount" adjustable shaft system and optional faceplete extension cable. RetroSound Radio Knob Sets are sold separately to match most popular classic vehicles. You can talk hands-free, stream audio programming to the receiver with your smartphone, connect your MP3 and WMA music files or USB thumb drive to the two rear USB ports. You'll also find two auxiliary inputs on the rear of the receiver for other sources using a standard headphone jack style output.

    If you purchase the SiriusXM SXV-300V1 tuner, visit www.siriusxm.com for a $70.00 rebate and details on a free three month subscription to the SiriusXM All Access Package upon activation. The "All Access" package includes every NFL, MLB, and NBA game, Howard Stern, every NASCAR race, plus NHL games and PGA TOUR coverage, as well as outside the vehicle access to SiriusXM on smartphones and other connected devices.

    The optional Vintage Radio Dial Screen Protectors allow you to add authenticity and style to your receiver while still allowing you to see the digital numbers behind the graphics. They're easy to apply, they look great, and they'll help prevent scratches and everyday damage. You can also choose from 32,0000 backlight colors so the LCD display will look just right in your dash.
