    Ah, the one-track record player.

    Cheers

    I have never seen a record player in a vntage car like that. Doesn’t the needle jump and skip when she goes over a bump??

    Notice the rear-view mirror attached to the dashboard.

    Here’s a video of the record player in action. Cool idea for the 50’s hepcats.

    Steve,
    I wondered how it worked. I wouldn’t have guessed the record played upside down but that makes sense as it might skip less in the air than flat in the machine.

    Thanks for this. Now I want one!

    Very interesting ! Perhaps it works like a juke-box. People will have to wait 10-15 more years for the cassette.

      Mario,
      If you look at the video Steve posted, you’ll get an idea how it worked. You actually had to move the needle arm to start the record.

      The cassette player in the car was a huge step for music. I love playing stuff I could choose.
