2022-08-08 - History of record players in cars

In the 1950s, anything seemed possible. The United States was recovering from a World War and feeling very confident in its future. It felt like America was rising like a phoenix from the ashes of the war, and new inventions were everywhere. Technology was heading in leaps and bounds toward the advancements that would take men into space, and home gadgets and gizmos were being created that were intended solely for convenience.

One of the places where the luxury of the 50s and 60s was felt the most was the car market. Cars were no longer boring and drab boxes on wheels that could get you from place to place. Cars were suddenly a sign of luxury and having a car with all the extras said something about a person. Enter all kinds of wacky comforts and upgrades, including the record player making its appearance in vehicles.

Record players in cars was a dream that would one day lead to the reality of portable music that we all know and take for granted.
