Cup Holder for C1 Corvettes (1956 thru 1962) See separate listing for C2 Vettes 1963-1967
Materials: ABS Plastic base, plastic stadium cups with logo
Quit worrying about holding your drink between your legs while clutching, shifting, braking, and steering your vintage Corvette. Just pull out your ash tray and pop in a cup holder made specifically for C1 (1956 - 1962) Corvettes.
When showing your Corvette and you need to go back to original …. just pull out the cupholder and replace your original ashtray.
Your Cupholder consists of two Corvette Logo 'Stadium' cups. The cups will accommodate 12 oz soft drink cans and 16 oz drinks as well. (Larger 'top heavy' drinks are not advised since the C1 Cupholder is 'surface mounted', not recessed.)
This cupholder concept was developed for use in my personal C1 62 Vette. (I can't cruise without a DP nearby.) This cupholder has proven very popular with the local Classic Corvette drivers.
The C1 Corvette cupholder is an assembly consisting of the following: 1) Block, 2) Base Plate, 3) Cups
1) A wooden block is inserted into the ashtray socket. The block is milled to size for the C1 and then pre-drilled for the base attachment. A screw is attached to the block to hold the block tight in the socket. (The screw may require adjustment to hold the block snugly as we have encountered differences in some Vettes. No surprise there.)
2) A flat base plate that is made of ABS plastic and custom shaped for the different size and orientation of the C1 console plate and ash tray orientation. The base plate is drilled for cup attachment and then attached to the top of the wooden block.
3) Two cups are then drilled and attached to the base to be the 'holders'. These cups are easily replaced if a smaller holder is preferred. You may notice that the C1 photo shows a smaller cup (which will only hold a 12 oz can). That photo is of my personal C1 and the cups were sourced on the internet. (Your car club might even want to order CUSTOM IMPRINTED cups!)
Your C1 Corvette cupholder will be delivered fully assembled. When installing the cupholder, please test the assembly and installation to make sure the cupholder is snug and safe to use. Do not use the cup holder if it seems the drink could spill. Larger drinks are 'top heavy' and are much more likely to spill, especially when popping the clutch or during fast, tight turns!!
