Before I go nuts Radio question

All right I have been searching for this answer and keep finding the radios. I am looking for the correct name of the radios. What I mean is today's radios are called DIN or double DIN. The ones with the two adjustable arms for the knobs were called?

I am looking to replace the radio in my 68 and want to start researching what is around and what is best for me.

Thanks

Thanks for the replies. I just need to know what that type radio was called. I have seen the USA radios and they seem OK. I just want to do a little research on what is available out there. This is a picture I grabbed from BING.

That will be a "Single DIN" radio. So you're going to go with the Old Style Radio?

Yes I plan on going old school with the two shafts one for tune and one for volume. I have found a lot of places that sell them but they all seem to carry about the same brand when you dig deeper. Thanks for the replies. I have until next year before it goes in but I need to save up my pennies as I go along to make sure I can get what I want.
