AM/FM 4-channel stereo (not quadraphonic), like most modern cars have.

I am reaching here because I can't find it on the web. Was it the 1968 Chrysler Imperial. I remember a friend of my mom's drove one and it really cranked. She made a good living working at the dog track and she was always buying new top of the line cars. I remember my dad always bragging about the stereo the her Imperial had.

No, Sir.

It is hard to find on the internet. It was a RARE option. They almost never come up for sale on Ebay.

To simplify things a little, let's forget about the model (there were several).

Just year and make.

This system used a separate multiplex adapter.

The answer is:

1965 Chevrolet

The first AM/FM stereo 4-channel radios made by an American automaker were produced by Delco in 1965. For the first year, they were only available in the all new 1965 full-sized Chevy line (and Z-16 Chevelles).

It's an obscure bit of trivia, but I thought there might have been some Chevy buffs out there who would have known the answer.
.................................................. ......................................
So here is a much easier question:

Many automobile companies were named after their founders or other famous historical figures. Desoto, Cadillac, Oldsmobile, Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Lincoln, etc.

Who was the Hudson Motor Car Co. named after? And what was this person's claim to fame?

Its nice to know that we some one up here with such a vast radio knowledge. Because from time to time I have a few weird radio problems and they have been known to stump me.

Actually the AM/FM radio was available in the Corvair Corsa in 1965 also, but only with a fixed height front antenna.

1986, Bobby Rahal. I assume this is a trick question being the first Indy 500 was ran in 1911.
