Overview

This installation package lets you finish off your RetroSound Newport receiver with the brackets, trim bezel, and wiring harnesses that are compatible with your classic Ford or Mercury vehicle. The brackets and trim bezel work with the Newport's radio chassis, so you can secure the radio in your dash cavity. The included wiring harness plugs directly into the Newport's wiring connector, so you can integrate your vehicle's factory wiring. Warranty: 90 days.

Note: The included wiring harness will need to be soldered or crimped to the RetroSound Newport's harness. The harness will then plug into your vehicle's factory radio plug. The harness does not contain a ground wire, so the ground wire (black) of the RetroSound Newport's harness must be grounded to metal behind the radio.
