Default Double-Din Stereo in a 65?

Has anyone put a double-din stereo in their 65? I was looking at putting one that has a 7" touchscreen that plays dvd's in mine, but I wanted to see if anyone has done it already so I can get some ideas. My dash is already cut for a single-din dvd player in it. Thanks for any responses or pics!

Something that big is better to mount under the dash or in a console down there.

I think it is going to be hard to find a double-din Dvd player in a 65. I was thinking of adding a flip out screen but I"m afraid of someone seeing it in there or knowing about it and stealing it. I'm thinking its going to be more expensive to replace a window that a dvd player so I decided not to. If you go decide to add the double-din post some pictures I would like to see how it looks and how you did it. Good luck with you project. I think someone added a flip out but it was on a 67 if I'm not mistaken.

Man, it's eerie how similiarour cars are! Anyways, I wanted to go the 7" flipout route because I have one sitting in the garage, but the screenwould hit the top ofthe dash.I went with a new 5in SINGLE Din DVD touchscreen. My dash was already cut also, so I went ahead with the 5 inch. I painted to match the car. I've also just installed power door locks and HID headlights.

Sorry about the dash, I'm in the process of repainting it and I need to install the dashpad and new steering whee.

I almost wish my dash had already been cut. I don't have the heart to cut it. When I was 16 and my first car was a '65 Stang, I had no problem with cutting it.

I think I'm just gonna run an amp and my ipod, I cannot see a good reason for a DVD in a car, but maybe that's just me.

I thought I was "Livin Large" when my girls got me an I Pod and a wired cassette tape adapter.

It seems like I met you on a BMW or Audi forum?

Anyways, DVD is overkill, although the kidsgo in the garage and sit in the car and watch Tom & Jerry, even though we have two 50inch plasmas inside the house! lol. I think it's cool because its a touchscreen, plus I like gadgets!
