Accessory 48 Chevy speaker?

Recommended Posts

Pulled this out of a 1948 Chevy that I had in my yard. In all the years my da and I have been dealing in old cars we have never seen one. The label says EMC on it and I believe the speaker grille is cast aluminum. Thought it was a rare and cool item to share, but maybe not.

I'm assuming that what you have is a part of an Electronic Music Corporation (loud) speaker.  I know, I know, assuming can get me in trouble, but beyond that, I really don't know.  Due to the apparent heavy duty construction, it could be part of a drive in theater speaker.  Just a guess.

 

Whatever it is, it's certainly cool.

Its a cool period piece, but not a GM accessory.

 

I remember seeing an ad for a 1949 Ford accessory speaker, that was somewhat portable, connected by a 25' cord.   It sat on a base, and it could be bolted to the rear package shelf, or as the ad showed, standing next to the car at a picnic.
