REPAIRING THE WONDERBAR RADIO OF THE 1958 CADILLAC SEVILLE

The radio on my 58 Eldorado Seville was the only thing that never worked since I got the car back in 1999.
Another Cadillac fan I know who likes to try to repair old things and especially older tube radios wanted to give it a try. So the radio came out of the dash.
After his first investigation it soon turned out that the vibrator inside the radio was inoperative.
We could not find a new one - so he decided to cut the aluminum tube with the vibrator inside open.
He ordered a couple of other parts and somehow managed to repair the original vibrator.
I have no clue how he managed to do that and what he did exactly - but I now have a working AM - “Wonderbar" radio inside my 58 Eldorado Seville and for the first time I can proudly say that EVERYTHING works on my 58!
He also managed to repair the speakers on the 1966
and I have a perfectly working radio on this car as well now.

…and back in.
