Years ago we used to mount the face of a removeable face radio on the visor.
Run ribbon cable from there to the radio, which was mounted in the dash, behind a custom panel with only a slit cut in it for the cd's. Sorry, don't have any pics, but any REAL custom shop should be able to do this.

Sony used to make the (think it was called) Remote Commander that is exactly like what James (89LX5.0) described. It was a wired face plate unit that controlled an AM/FM Tuner and a Disc Changer. I thought they were pretty cool and a buddy of mine had this setup with two Commanders. One mounted on the visor and the other loose. Plus he had a half DIN EQ mounted where the radio with normally go and a half DIN Sony tape unit that had a slide out tape tray that you would insert a tape in from the top (think of it like a DVD player with the tray that slides out and you set a DVD on it). It was very trick for the time (late 80's to real early 90's).
