    Cup Holder Ideas w/4 speed ?

    Tried doing a search but not a lot of luck with it. Have the original bench seat with a deep throw 4 speed shifter. Looking for some thoughts and ideas what others have done for this. I did find a cup holder arm rest style console that sits on the bench seat I am considering but have not pulled the trigger on it yet. Can't do a link as not computer savvy enough for that, LOL. www.cupholdersplus.com, either the standard or shortened version, not sure. Welcome any thoughts and ideas from others.

    carl's56, Can't tell for sure but looks like a auto shift on the floor? My 57 has a 4 speed with the bench seat shifter and looks like that cup holder would be an issue for shifting clearance? Maybe even more so when doing some "spirited" shifting, LOL. Thanks for the reply and the pic.

    Seen your a 'Nam vet. Myself, class of 69-70, Central Highlands. When were you in-country and where? Welcome Home, Brother !

    I have the same sort of 'on top of the bench seat' cupholder/console in my '56 Nomad, with floor mounted auto shifter. It's not a big issue since my seat is all the way back but it would be for a short legged person.

    I have one from a place called Classic Consoles.com. They make one version for an automatic column shift, and a shorter one for floor shift cars. Might want to check them out. I have the column shift one in my 56.

    bustewivell, looks like the shorter one is very similar to the one offered by the website I mentioned. Will do a bit of measuring and see how the fit would be regarding the 4 speed stick. Thanks for the reply.

    Here's something I saw in a '72 Chevrolet C10 truck.

    My friend bought one while we were at Good Guys Scottsdale from So Cal Speed Shop. He got the shorter one for his 55 with a bench seat and a 4 speed. Let me know if you need measurements from his.

    busterwivell, measurements would be great, thanks for the reply and offer. I have measured my bench as it is set for me and from the seat back cushion to the shifter handle in 2nd / 4th gear position it measures 19 1/2'' to the rear most portion of the T-handle knob. Have just about decided the "short version" is the critter I need. The longer, narrow one believe would create an issue for the shift handle clearance. Thanks again for offering the measurements and if possible pics of the console in place would be great.
