An AM radio sounds awful producing no high audio frequencies.
Most speakers that small size will be 8 ohms so the maximum output power will be half as when the radio was new.

The resistance of the voicecoil would be higher if it was an 8 Ohm speaker. There are 5" 4 Ohm speakers available on Amazon and eBay.
I'd look at a few videos before attempting it. There is special glues for speakers. Check out MG Chemicals.
50 years ago, you could take the speaker to the local electronics parts place and they would send it away.
It's a very good idea for restorations.

Good luck!
