Below are some pictures of Juan Tejeda's beautiful 1959 SquareBird. The engine is an upgraded 63 390 with a .030ob, Edlebrock upper and lower, twin Holly 750's. Restored in 2000, to a 60's style restoration. It has a 45RPM ARC Record Player added.

You will see part of that 45RPM ARC Record Player in the right corner of the interior photo. I nearly bought one of those myself some years ago, but they wanted an arm and a leg for it back then. Wish I had bought it now! Here is a video of an 45RPM Record Player. RCA also made them. Some versions only played one record, and others you could stack a number of records into the player. I see they are selling from $600-$1,500 or more now!
