    THIS HAS NO MARKINGS AS TO MAKER. THE ONLY MARKING IS MADE IN JAPAN. HAVE NO WAY TO KNOW IF IT WORKS AS I HAVEN'T HAD AN 8 TRACK SINCE 1970.

      We had an eight track player in our 66 GTO (added on) and we got one of these. It never did work good but the car had only AM for a radio. At night when FM stations were allowed to broadcast back then it was spotty reception. The mfg info is probably under the hood on your unit. It was a fad that never quite made it, like beta and VHS. Although I know a guy in New Hampshire who still owns and uses an 8 track. Finding tapes that work is difficult now days.

      That old GTO had a big back seat for listening to music...........another story.

      The main thing that goes bad on 8-tracks are the pressure pads. They tend to dry rot, however, they can be easily replaced.

      I use to have one of these in the early seventies. I got it from a company I worked at back then in Downey CA.. "Bowman Astrosonics" The company had them manufactured and imported from Japan with the name Bowman Astrosonics on the tape case and as I can recall they worked great in my under- dash 8 track player. They were unique then as they are now
