My 73 did not have the original radio when I bought it. I was wondering what car and year this AM/FM 8 track came from. I took a few photos.

Not sure if AM/FM/8 Track was an option in 73. This is my 73 radio with AM/8 Track, the plugs are different and the pushbuttons are in different locations.

8-tracks were only available with AM for 71-3's from what I remember.

Your probably came out of 1973 or later (til ??? year???) LTD, Galaxie, Country Squire, Torino, Ranchero.
Also see referrence to 74-78 Mustang II application.
possible pn D3AZ-18806-A

Ford Parts Dept sold as an accessory the floor or under-dash mounted 8-track player. It was more common to earlier(about 66-70) cars. The one I remember looked simialr to the pic but the outside case was covered in padded vinyl or a softer plastic.

that looks a lot like a 1978 AMC Matador 8 track radio.

The funny thing is the wiring plugs right in like it was original. There are no splices in any of the wiring but my dealer invoice said the car came with an AM/FM radio.

See above.

FYI: note that the typeface on the frequency indicator matches many Ford products of the time, while the Matador's radio is styled to match the typeface of the AMC dash.
