Wanted: Old AM car radio for a project

I have a really nice wood cabinet with a lid that housed a destroyed child's organ, and decided I'd like to build an old car radio into it . I already have the power supply ready to go....

Doesn't matter if it's tube or transistor, or if it works (I can always repair it), just would prefer something pre-1970 or so. I'm sure someone out there has a neat old AM car radio that could use a new life

I have an Automatic AM, solid state, I think it was NOS when I got it, 60s era. I misplaced the knobs. Yours for shipping. Edit-found a photo:

It must be from the later 60's. NO Conalrad symbols.
It's one of those "dealer installed specials". They would order the car without a radio, then install one of those and charge factory price for it.
Not real bad radios, but as good as factory.

I picked it up at a charity yard sale held at a local Ford dealer. I suspect it had been picked from the dusty corners of the parts department. Must have been 15 years ago.

Do you know if there's a dial lamp in that set? If so, I think that'd do nicely
