Hello - does anyone have a photo of a correct original mono dash speaker installation in a 1963 Buick Special? I need a new speaker, and all I see in the dash for installation is a flip-up wire clip. Any information, photos, or advice would be greatly appreciated.

This is going to be a bit challenging, but not impossible. The speaker that goes in the dash, above instrument cluster is an irregular shape. It is a long and thin speaker. You can remove the upper instrument cover so you can see, how it fits. There is under the speaker a u-shaped bracket that is rubber coated, but with age has crackled.

Thanks for the reply. I have been talking with Greg from Electro-Tech, Inc. and he is puzzled also. Seems as if this model had its own unique speaker installation. It is a standard 4x10 speaker size common in 60s GM cars, but the installation is much different.
I remember taking the original speaker out 25+ years ago (which is long gone, of course). I remember it just clipping into that wire harness/cradle.
I'll keep my eyes open for a OEM speaker, or try one of Electro-Tech's 4x10s and get it to fit.
