It would require you to do a fair amount of fabrication work. The stock opening is 1.5 DIN. But with the desire to do it and the time and Patience anything is possible.

It most definitely is... One of our old members had one installed in to his '95 and it looked great! I don't know if I have a pic of it or not.

I would like to see a pic as well, since I measured my 94 to see if it would fit a double. IT WILL NOT. Its 1.5. And I can't see the 95 being any bigger as a factory radio than the 94.

1.5 DIN, no problem. 2 DIN, no way unless you modify the radio location to fit it. Take two standard DIN radios, stack them together and see if they will fit, that is what 2 DIN is. I currently am running a 1 DIN Sony, works fine.

Maybe some of the older beretta's (or was it a corsica) that had a 2 DIN opening, but not sure.

My 93 caravan had a 2 DIN opening, definitely bigger. :D

Maybe this will help. LOL

Scroll down, it lists the sizes it can fit.

just currently looking at making a faceplate/mount, and some trimming can be done upwards towards the vent. i dont have a double din deck to try, but i dont think it would be too hard. you would have the trim the stock vent/facia plate up towards the vents as well... then depending how picky you are, blend it into the deck area nicely

There was a guy, Lord knows how long ago, on B'Stuff that moved the H/VAC controls to where the cup holder is on a '91 and later dash to facilitate some sort of stereo installation.

There was also a guy who put a single din CD player in the cupholder spot.

DON'T ask me how the Hell I remember this 'cause I can't remember squat lately, but ???

I remember the cup holder stuff as well.I even remember a guy who mounted his aftermarket radio inside the center console and left the stock radio in so thieves wouldn't look twice at it. Like others have said you would have to cut things up but with some patience and work you can get it done.

We are going to try this on my daughter's 96 in the future. I'm thinking of enlarging the opening towards the vent and redirecting the vent through small openings on either side. This project is a little ways off though. Any advice would be appreciated. We are basically restoring this car for her.
