Our Expert's Take:

The Custom Autosound USA-740 Radio has modern technology and vintage looks. There is no need to cut the dash on your Vintage Volkswagen, the Custom Autosound radios are made to fit the stock VW dash opening. To retain the vintage look of the stereo the inputs (with the exception of an inconspicuous 1/8" stereo jack input at the lower front right of the display) are on the back of the radio. They can be easily routed to the glovebox so they can be accessed inside the car but still remain out of sight.
