    If this works as planned, there should be an attached along with this post, of an image of the 45 RPM Record Player I have in my 1960 Plymouth Savoy. The Record Player was a Factory Authorized option for my Plymouth in 1960

    By first glance I thought it was an air conditioning unit.

    I don't remember them looking this fancy.

    They used to come in a box that would sit on the transmission hump. Then it became a 4 track player. Then an 8 track and then it went big time with cassettes.

    I just saw a touch screen in-dash unit yesterday that played DVD's, radio, satellite, etc. I just audio equipment.

    78 records were the big bands. 45's were rock n' roll. 33 1/3 was farout man. lol

    Wow, that really brings back some good old memories. I put one of those in my 1956 Buick Special back in 1966 when I was in high school.

    The aftermarket units sat on the Transmission Hump. The Chrysler factory units mounted under the Dashboard, and had to be mated with the 'Hi-Way' 'Hi-Fi' Radio that acted as the 'Pre-Amp' for the 'Record Player.' Also, you won't find a schematic, or ANY reference to the aftermarket unit in the 'Factory shop Manual', but you will find the 'Factory Unit' detailed in the Manual

    Yes, it works, and unless you drive over a roller coaster of a road, the unit's built in dampening keeps the needle from skipping.

    You mean like when I showed the car to my Son's 2nd grade class some years ago, and when asked what they thought the Record was, one intrepid young man answered, a 'CD.'
