Audio is available from an assembly mounted on the rear panel. Video tape playback is provided by a VCR mounted on the front panel. All the components are combined in a single unit to be easily installed into and removed from the automobile. The panels are sized so that when both are swung upward into the folded position, the rear panel protects the screen of the television set and the front panel positions the VCR in a space formed between the two panels.
