Audio setups in Convertible E bodies

I just picked up a clean Challenger convertible.
Plum crazy with white stripes top and interior. Finished out with ac heat and power steering. She’s a great cruiser and economical for long road trips with a 318.

The car does lack in the tunes department
An inoperable radio and I hope a working single speaker in the dash. I have to look the car has a new dash cap that it glued down so I’ll have to remove it and replace. So I want a game plan before starting.

Before I start fixing the radio setup I like to get others opinions on it and how they addressed it.

You own my dream car. A purple and white convertible combo to die for!

The dash cap glued on doesn't look bad from what I've seen, and there really isn't a need to remove it. The center speaker is pretty sad, even if it does work. It's a 4" X 10". Do you want to have an original radio, or are you OK going with after market? I went with after market to get a CD player to at least get me into this century. It's a single DIN radio, so it fit in the original radio space. I put 2 6" X 9" 3-way speakers in the rear, with an amp in the trunk. It worked out great. I just had to cut the holes in my rear package tray cardboard, as the holes were already in the metal panel beneath them. Does your convertible have the same panel area on top behind the rear seat??

You might want to visit https://www.e-bodies.org/ for more help with your classic. Best of luck to you.
