|The classic automotive 8 Track players
|The ancient DELCO 4-knobber,
8 track underdash (no radio).
Model # 6264547 and many others
This is the classic of all classics, and is unquestionably
the best 8 Track Player ever manufactured for cars.
With a huge, heavy motor and capstan, large flywheel and
double belt system for consistent speed, this is the
"Sherman Tank" of all car 8 track machines.
This unit always requires several hours of labor to restore

like new for a good 15 years once professionally serviced.
The indicator lamps simply pull out from the top, and can be
replaced by the user with easily obtainable 12 volt lamps.

knob is a dummy knob for appearance and has no function.

These units share the same inexpensive construction as
the above unit, but are nevertheless very reliable machines
once restored to factory performance. These machines often
don't have the torque to pull stubborn tapes, but this will

pressure pad, and many will need to be played all the way
through several times to pack the tape evenly again. This
