Classic Car AM Radio iPod MP3 Adapter 6 or 12 volt +or- It's On Ebay! I have this in my classic cars. I just move my Iphone around to the car I'm driving. It works cool. $115.
This is a "Buy it Now" listing for an adapter that plays your iPod or MP3 player through your existing AM Radio (it is a hardwired AM modulator with an automatic switch)
It's like adding a CD changer to your original stereo system but without the high cost, labor or mounting issues. iPod/MP3 player not included.
Easy installation and NO MODIFICATIONS needed.
No need to upgrade or change out your stock radio.
Perfect for classic cars, one unit works for all vehicles 6 volt, 12 volt, negative ground or positive ground
28 inch cable plugs into any iPod, iPhone, Zune, or MP3 player via the 3.5 headphone jack.
About the size of a deck of cards, it easily mounts under the dash out of sight.
Tune your AM radio to 1000 and it automatically senses when your iPod or MP3 player is turned on.
12 seconds after you turn your iPod or MP3 player off it automatically switches back to AM radio reception.
Call us for additional information M-F 9-5 PST 949-722-1084 or 1-877-435-6911
Other similar units cost much more and are specific to 6/12 volt +/- ground. This unit fits all cars regardless of voltage or ground orientation. Remove it when you sell your classic car and install in the next car.

vadaxradio.com makes a AM transmitter for classic cars with a embedded bluetooth.receiver. It receives the bluetooth signal and then rebroadcasts on the AM band

Personally I really like NPR also, but I am having a 1929 RCA Radiola radio restored for me and I want to play mp3's of old radio shows and music through it. So I'm interested in a low output AM transmitter for that.

I've seen kits for under $50 but adapting the iPhone/iPod requires some fiddling around.

Is there a web site for the transmitter that Tmdenis mentioned? Does that unit transmit at higher frequencies that are normally in the AM band?
