Ford Offers The Latest High Tech Audio 49 Years Ago
This week in 1965, The Ford Motor Company became the first automaker to offer an 8-track tape player as an option for their entire line of vehicles on sale in the US. 8-track tapes were initially only available at auto parts stores.
8-track equipment for home use wouldn’t be on the scene for about another year.
This Mustang TV spot from 1966 gives you a quick look (15 sec.in) at the "stereo-sonic" tape player.
