Center console?

So I've got my 96 GT convertible and one thing I've NEVER liked is the fact I have 1 cup holder and it folds out of the center console arm rest. I hate it. Someone told me I could get a console from a 97 and it'd fit perfectly but instead of the ash tray, I'd have cup holders. Is this true?

Try Craigslist. I always see them on there, usually $50-80. Now that I want one I wont be able to find one.

I didn't realize the console up to 04 would fit mine, that'll make it easier for me to find one now

Yes 94-04 should be interchangable.

I think the 99+ consoles leave a little gap, not noticeable. I'm not for sure but I thought I read that somewhere.

I pick a 01 mustang up from the junk yard and it fit just need to do a little wiring the only down site is that you will have about 1 inch gap and the back the only way you will notice it is from the back
