    Head unit - bluetooth while retaining the cassette deck?

    Title says it all, as wondering if it is at all possible to add bluetooth functionality to a stock head unit while also retaining the cassette deck? I know of adapters that replace the cassette deck, but I want to have both

    Or of anyone knows of any period correct looking he had units that have both.

        If not, I plan on just reverting back to the old head unit and using an adapter.

          Time to discard cassettes and digitalize!

                Cassettes are nice and all that, but you are not likely to find any HU that has tape and BT while looking at all cohesive. Clearly you can splice the signal in by modding a stock deck, but you then keep all of the output linitations of OE stuff, and you probably can't have BT without an input switch.

                Personally, the Continental TR...whatever is a good unit for the price, but it's BT/Aux or BT/Aux/CD only at last check.
