Dunno about filtering outside interference, but filtering out noise from
the ignition system has needed doing ever since cars had radios put into
them, and still does.  It can be done it two ways; ignition noise
suppressors in the power line to the radio, and noise suppressing leads
on the spark plugs.  And some use both methods.

Go to a general electronics shop, or a place that fits car radios.
