If like me you're at the cutting edge of fashion, new technology and, in particular, in-car entertainment, you will surely be keen to buy this brand new, old stock, item.

Just think of the bragging rights you'll have down the pub amongst your friends who have yet to upgrade from a vintage 8 track cassette.

Peters and Lee, Mrs Mills, and Lena Martell will surely sound so much better through this cassette adapter.

Dare I say, it would suit someone with an FF?

I am guessing that unit will not work on the Lear Jet radio since the 8 track totally disappears in the player and it is not as long as the tape. Most other players the tape sticks out about an inch so this unit would work in those applications. :)

Just think how great your Tom Jones cassette will sound!

Probably worth a mention...

I have this exact model of adaptor for my Healey (with a Jensen Radiomobile 8 track player) - it works fine but is best only used on long motorway journeys. The problem is that when fitted it sticks out just enough to get in the way of the gear stick when shifting into 1st or 3rd - as such I only use it once settled into 4th, and expecting to be in 4th for a while! 8)
