 Ipod directly into Amp?

Has any one tried connecting an Ipod directly to a car amplifier without using a head unit? We are in the process of restoring an old car which has one of those old push button radios mounted into the dash. We want to keep the dash original which means leaving the exiting non working unit in place. What we would like to do (if possible) is connect the speakers to a small amp that we will mount behind the dash and connect an iPod directly to the amp. Has anyone done this and can recommend a good amp that will do this job? Many thanks in advance

Thanks for that. I knew it would "work" but I was just wondering about mismatching of OHMS, voltage etc.. that would cause problems long term. Cheers Jase

And dont forget to leave the eq setting on your ipod OFF. You will get distortion with it on.
