I'm not sure about '68-'69 models, but the right-hand under-dash covers on
my '71 and '73s contain a grill (perforated opening) that looks like it's
intended to accommodate a single mono speaker - about 4X6 in size. ' Seems
I recall seeing a speaker installed there on some car(s).
On my '73, I built a speaker enclosure that sits atop the battery cover.
It is low enough to allow the top to go down without problems. Advantages:
no holes cut in car, pretty good sound around town with top up.
Disadvantages: must remove to access batteries, reduced storage, lousy
sound with top down, reduced quality if anything is lying on top of the
enclosure (read: speaker grills). I am seeking a better solution. I don't
like door panel mounts even tho they are original on late models - sooner
or later the speakers get wet - even with the plastic shields on them.
