my 68 beetle started ON FIRE beacause of an improper installation, had to pull off the freeway and put out the flames!

Back in those days there was a metal strap on the back and a pair of nuts on the nose pieces. Remove the knobs, remove the screws, reach in and unbolt the strap and the radio drops out the bottom. There was one power wire, one speaker wire, one ground maybe and one antenna wire.
