Default a new car stereo in an old chassis

I am building a '68 Road Runner and it has an AM radio. I have found places online that for 3 arms and 2 legs will upgrade your old car radio to new workings inside the old chassis so it still looks and operates like the original. Has anyone done this and have any advice on a good new stereo to use? I would like to get one with remove control if possible and make it work with my old knobs and buttons.

Thanks,
DC

You could get one of these: Moss Europe, Ltd - Classic Parts for Classic, MX-5, MGF, Mini, MGB

Or the Becker Mexico is available in an old school style with sat nav and BT built in and ipod ad ons:

those are pretty cool but my radio has roll knobs and I am wanting to stay with the original look. Thanks for the reply and the links.

Got a pic of the radio?

Otherwise leave the radio in place, fit an amp and run an ipod/other through it?
