We restored a ton of drive-in speakers when we were in the restoration business. Why not? They are a great reminder of a simpler time when a Friday night meant piling in the car to go see a double feature on a warm summer night. Now they are great decor for a garage or TV room.
If you are thinking of sticking your toe into the hobby of restoration these might be a good place to start. You can still find them on eBay and they are an easy restoration. Scuff them up or sandblast them, apply paint or powder coating, make a stand and replace the speakers and wires and that’s that.
These items are not for sale. We show restored items in this blog to encourage discussion, prompt questions and further the hobby of collecting and restoration. We also enjoy sharing the photos of the many items we have restored over the years.
