Should the AM 8 track radio that is correct for a 1968 XR7 have 5 push buttons? I see in the owners manual that there are no buttons. Which one is correct? I have the center console that has the round electric clock under the radio.
Bill, I pulled out my manual also. The very top picture shows the 5 push buttons at the top of the player.(as what I have) the second pic shows just the 8 track player. On page 22 it say’s there were two available, AM 8 track combination and a separate stereo sonic tape system. It says it would be located below the instrument panel. It makes mention that a AM or AM-FM stereo can be installed in addition to the stereo unit. I personally have not ever just seen the 8 track player only.
I just love this stuff… The 1st printing shows what looks like the '68 knob, so that makes me think that it wasn’t just a reused photograph from the 1967 version of the manual. But the body copy describes how to use push buttons that are not in the photograph. Was there an AM 8 track in early '68 that didn’t have the buttons or did they just not have a picture available for the manual? Thanks for posting the picture of the page!
