What goes in this bracket? After market tape player perhaps?

Recommended Posts


Just picked up my 7/72 Mach1.

I noticed that it has this bracket below the wiper switch. It seems to have an edge connector on it for easy removal.

It is the bracket only. what was there seems to be long gone.

Any ideas? Was it a factory Ford Item?

There seems to be connectors on the wires behind.. So I suspect it is an after market item.

Any clues?

The car has the stock AM/FM radio installed in the normal place with speakers behind the front seats in the side panels.

Reminds me the shape of a CB bracket. It's no Ford part.

Thanks for that. A CB would make sense as it has a aerial cable behind it that is laying on the floor with a large UHF screw connector.

Will look to remove it and see if I can find where the aerial wire goes.

I had an old Craig powerplay 8 track that had a similar slide in mount so you could move it from car to car.

Way back in the day I had an old slide mount for a tape deck radio. Thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread at the time

What??? You don't want to sharpen knives while you're driving?

LOL.. It is going to be enough of a challenge to be driving the car from the left seat on the left side of the road, let alone sharpen the knives at the same time.

Thanks for the suggestion though..

This Mach1 is a long way from where it was born..
