In the 80's MB offered a special part for cell phones. It is a padded, upholstered mount for the old style cell phones. It mounted on the passenger side of the console/trans hump. I bought one back then in gray, Since we have the portable cells now, I guess its time to take it out. But I'm thinking that it could be used for any switches or things that you have no room for on the console. Anybody else have one?

i have this "old" cellular phone console but you say you have a new portable (me too) but you have a 2 Watt portable ! the cellular phone for car (the big!) is the 8 Watt and this phone now was same too the old ! because is the same technologie ! the reception was more better than the simple 2 Watt. i think you dont remove your console, it's an original piece !

You are correct. The old 8 watt phones were much better. I just thought that I could find a better use for this piece. It is very nice.

I have one, thinking about putting my all band scanner there. Not sure what a cop would say if he saw it though...

I also have the 8 watt analog phone mounted to the passenger side of the stack with the hands free speaker located over the driver’s overhead hand grip and the pigtail antenna attached to the rear window. It’s still powered and ready to go but with no service. Toyed with the idea of activating it but who sells analog service anymore or at what price. [?]

Not sure now, but about 2 years ago, verizon was still allowing new contracts. Analog though, and expensive.
