Simeon, i disagree...the older becker body is mounted in a standard DIN case even though the face is shaft style/push button operation...one DIN size opening works

 

Your right, does this mean I can swap

any single din Radio ?

i have the car set up as original for show 

and I just want to temporarily swap the radio out for long trips

Not sure if you can without some work.  Modern car radios single DIN or not have standard plugs combining power, switch power, front/back speaker wires... that plug directly to the back.  The Becker Europas have separate speaker wires with special plugs and power wire going into the back.  

 

I had a modern radio that I removed and had to redo the power & speaker wires to connect to the Becker.

as stated above, if you can power the one you want to swap in temporarily...you could always jump a set of wires that will work with either when needed

 

a modern single DIN radio and a Becker will both fit the same DIN mount sleeve/bracket
