It was actually done in the 50s and 60s, but strangely, it never really caught on!

Yep - for real. When I was in the Marines at Norfolk, Va., one of my buddies bought one of these record players and put it in his car. Worked pretty good, altho if you hit a significant bump, or hole in the pavement, you usually got a skip in the playback.
