Custom fox-body cup holder

I’ve been a fan of the fox-body Mustang ever since I was interested in cars.  This is my 3rd 5.0 I’ve owned and I have the same complaint with all of them…NO CUP HOLDER!  There’s a few aftermarket solutions, an extended arm rest with small, very small cup hole., or a cup holder that fits in the ashtray…that is also too small and doesn’t work very well…IMO.

I found this picture online, at a Mustang Forum…of a fox-body interior with a custom dual cup holder integrated in the center console.  It looked great!  I contacted the owner, turned out the father made it for his son’s car.  After several emails, he was nice enough to accept an offer to make me one.  I sent him down a used center console piece I picked up at a swap meet.  And weeks later he sent me a finished piece.

I asked him for updated photos of his progress.

I had to tape off and paint the cup holders black to match the console
