The Vinyl Killer – VW Bus Portable Record Player

Yes, you read that right. This little VW Bus looks like a Hot Wheel. But it plays records.

Thats just crazy. Why I would ever want to play that on most of my records is beyond me, but it is pretty cool.

Apparently, it only comes as a Volkswagen Bus. But it comes in many different colors, and even with flames.I really can’t tell what music that it is playing, it sounds pretty bad, but it almost sounds like Rick Dees with Disco Duck. There isn’t any singing though.

The only place that I can find that sells this is Juno. Just click the VW Bus.

    People pay a lot of moo-la for an Original Soundwagon in the original box. You can get a Vinyl Killer. Or there is a new version of the Soundwagon for about 90 bucks USD..

    it would be the perfect present for a good friend of mine and JUNO doesn’t have it anymore… :(

    I have tried to find these Soundwagons other places, but they are almost always sold out. I don’t think the company makes very many of them. If I find them somewhere else, I will let you know.

    I have a bright yellow Soundwagon sitting here in CA. Perfect condition, with the original box. Works just perfect. Yes, the sound is twangy but that is the good part. In my mind this bus was made for a Willie Nelson record. Sounds great. For the right price Willie can go along with the bus.

  5. Brigitte Johnson Says:

    I’m listing my mint in box spun wagon from 1985 on eBay USA today. They’re cool and listed in radio museum;

    Dimensions (WHD) 115 x 65 x 60 mm / 4.5 x 2.6 x 2.4 inch
    Notes Soundwagon, “MusicMobile” or “Tamco Musical Toy Soundwagon VW Bus” is a special record player: It’s not the record that spins. The self running record player doesn’t need turntables but churns out music by driving round the record with a needle that is underneath the car. The bus is more of a novelty (Gadget) than any serious replacement for your turntable, as the speaker is quite small. Listening to music from a moving source can be quite disorientating. It is amazing to watch though! Colors available: at least white, red, blue, yellow and gold. It uses a 9-volt battery in the back hatch and has a motor for the wheels, along with a movable steering ‘needle’ to guide it on it’s way. You can find also some (white ones, with “GO! GO!” written to the sides) having University of Illinois decals. This means that somebody could order a certain quantity, branding them to anything.

    If you are looking to buy one of these, you can find them on eBay.. Currently they sell for about $100-200 used, or $250 for one that’s in new condition. I got lucky and found a working one today in an antique store, guy said it wasn’t for sale.. Until I offered him $50.. And it works great.

    Great for a laugh, and I still drive old VW’s, so just something fun to have.
