DYI W123 1977-85 Center Consloe Cup Holder for sale $75

I'm sure I'm not the only one to do this but I'm selling a few of these hand made center console cup holders which I am told will fit any of the 1977-1985 W123 Mercedes Benz 230, 240D, 280CE, 280E, 300CD, 300D, 300TD (W123). Several of my friends and I, who own a of these vintage Mercedes, were always complaining about there being no cup holders. I finally got around to trying out a few designs and finding the one I liked best. I made a few last year, tweaking the design a little in the process and gave them out as gifts to friends. Since then other W123 owners have come to me and I ask that I build them one as well .I'm not a carpenter, but I'm pretty handy and like to tool around. Each one is made with reclaimed wood and materials (discarded plywood from my friends tour cabinet shop and left over strips of wood from the an art installation last July. The two I show here have the inlay coin or cigarette pocket lined with leather of an old art carrying case) These are handmade, assembled, stained and painted by me, DIY style, they are not off of an assembly line, and they look like they are not off of an assembly line. Consequently each duel cup holder is a little unique and may show some imperfections found in the original wood, but they are very sturdy and once installed (simply set it in the center council) they should fit snug and they will look and function as intended. No more spills. My regular work is slow over the holidays and I can make more if needed. If you are interested please contact by email at me at sbaxter65@gmail.com. To make it worth my while I need to stay firm at the price of $75. There are dozen of these now in use locally but I've yet to ship any. The cost of shipping will be added on but and I'm guessing it will be $5-10. I'm legit and just trying to stay busy at a time of year when not much is going on. but if it makes anyone feel better i have small art gallery in Fullerton and the website is Art With An Agenda/The Egan Gallery *Located at 223 W. Santa Fe Ave. Fullerton CA - Now On Exhibit. You find lots of press on me and the shows I've done. If you received it, don't like it, or it does not fit contact me withing 7 days of receiving it, mail it back and you will get a full refund less shipping. If you don't expect this to look factory made I don't think you will be disapointed.

If you are interested PLEASE MEASURE YOUR CENTER CONSOLE SPACE BELOW THE ARM REST AND MAKE SURE IT MATCHES CLOSELY WITH THOSE I LIST IN THE 2ND PICTURE. I'm told all these models have the same center console but I've only used my cup holder in the 280SE and 300SD.
