So you want a big touchscreen stereo in your Vair

This new product from Alpine looks like it could be pretty spectacular for owners of older cars that were designed for small, single DIN size components. The main “box” mounts in a traditional single DIN opening, then the 9-inch touchscreen “floats” just in front of the dash and can be adjusted for vertical position and angle.

Android Auto, CarPlay, satellite and HD radio, plus a lot more.

Not sure how it would look in a Corvair but I may have to find out.

Here is a link to the Crutchfield page with pics, specs and a video...oh, and a price of course.

Hey that's pretty neat. Thanks for posting Chance. My challenge in my EM convertible is not getting the head unit it, it's finding places for decent speakers that would justify a unit like that!

Cool, but if you have factory A/C it would block the center vent. confused smiley

$900 and no RDS?
It does say it's adjustable 30mm up or down.
Who is going to buy one and show us how it fits?

I'm thinking about trying one in my convertible but they aren't actually available yet so you'll just have to waitwinking smiley

I think you might be able to position it below the AC center vent. I looks like you can adjust it on the fly so you could start the car, them simply slide it below the vent.
