How to upgrade radio/cassette player to radio/CD on 1986 Chieftain?

Well, yes, I still have cassettes I can use, but have a lot more CDs. Is there a radio/cassette/CD player I can put in place of the standard player, and if so, where do I get it?

Is the present radio in a 1 DIN sized opening? (2" x 7") If so, then any 1 DIN size stereo unit will fit in place of the old one. If your dash doesn't have a 2" x 7" rectangular sized opening, but only small holes for the knobs and cassette player, probably the dimensions of the radio behind the dash is still about a 1 DIN size. You could remove the radio and cut out an opening for a 1 DIN mount and slide in a new unit.

Look at all options available in a new stereo, I like the fact that my stereo allows input from my iPhone, charges it, and also has a tiny wireless remote I have in reach on my steering wheel spoke since the radio is a bit of a reach.

A couple of months ago I search unsuccessfully for a cassette CD radio player to replace my broken cassette CD radio player. I found a couple of used ones on eBay however I decided to purchase a stand-alone CD radio player and cut another hole in the dash. The cassette portion of my broker unit still worked.
