Anybody using a center console on a late model? I was thinking of installing one offered on eBay but wasn't sure if there were more options. Here is the link: ... 3f&vxp=mtr

Looks like a practical, useful design!
$153.95 on eBay, including shipping



California Corvairs...
A lack of cupholders in a Corvair can be a problem. The type that hangs on the door tends to fall off. I have one of these between the front seats on my convertable...

Hopkins SMT Twin Cupholder (Black)

Small, adjustable for those "Big Gulps", unobtrusive, and easy to install with two screws. Only $11.80 on
Sixteen customer reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

At the other custom extreme, this was my favorite design...

I just put a Clarks center console in my LM this evening . LOVE IT , it fits great and is nice and secure. Love the added storage space which is great to hide my GPS.

I purchased my center console from California Corvairs and ablolutely love it. I think it is the same brand or type as Clarks sells. Perfect ride height for your elbow. I love the cup holders and the glove box like area to put stuff. Best money I spent, besides the Corvair itself.

Here is a custom one I built a while back. Sorry about the poor image quality. Was scanned from a beat up print.

George, my body shop pro, custom-built this console that has two cup holders, a double DIN stereo, 4 speakers and the relocated PG shift lever.

I am scheduled to get the completed 69 vert this morning (fingers crossed):
