Mine is a converted cup holder for a stroller.  It straps around the e brake.  
Not enough weight to effect the brake at all.

I made mine from a couple of bicycle water bottle cages.
Hose clamped them to the left and right side of the steering column.  :-O

Actually there is not as much to be jealous of as one might think.  So
here it is since it will come out eventually.  It is a 62, fifteen
window with a 21 window top made to look like a 59-60.  It was pretty
well done but it was done awhile ago and everything needs to be
freshened up like the rubber, headliner and finish the interior.

But I don't care it's beautiful, I like it, theres no rust holes and
it's mine. :-) :-D

It will be running and stopping by next Monday.  Since it hasn't been
on the road since 1999 I'm gonna make sure it's mechanically sound.
The pictures were from the guys house I picked it up from it had been
sitting under a carport since 99.

  It's OK, kinda dirty, though. And it has a nasty old Indian
blanket on the    floor and I think I see rust in the parcel tray.
The ball on the shifter    handle is wrong. I think that it is
missing a windwing latch.

  Lots of work. I hope you didn't pay too much.
