I was going through Ebay today looking at Tauruses... I stumbled across this one ( I know its a ebay site ) Take a look at his console... its a column shift but he added a floor shift console, took out the shifter and added some cup holders... i have never seen this done before just thought it was different and could share it with everyone. Maybe you column shift guys out there could take this idea and make a nice little mod. enjoy...

There are a couple people on here who have gone a couple steps further and have a working floor shifter in place. They also have blanked out the old column shifter.

I have a column shifter car, and i added a center console. I opted not to change over to the floor shifter and instead used to hole as a cup holder. As of right now its just a hole, but soon i am planning on actually building a real cup holder into the space.

This is exactly what I plan to do on the wagon. I already have the console, I just have to figure out what I want to do with the shifter hole. Since the console already has cup holders, I think I might try to make a small, lockable compartment.

You could fill it up with paper clips and pennies.

I have a strict no food policy in my car and there are no tolls in Ontario... Therefore, there is no source of change in my car! I'm not sure why anyone would have lots of paper clips in there car?

I'd go all the way and do the column to console shift swap...

i also thought about just mounting a flat piece of plastic under the hole so that it basically turns into a tray that you could put a nonslip thing in to hold a cell phone or MP3 player. since the power port is in the dash, this "tray" idea would be in a prime position to set the phone, and keep it real close to the Bluetooth stereo im gonna put in. I have lots of ideas for ways to make this hole useful, unfortunately im very indecisive, so who knows when i will pick the right idea for me to do lol.

Just use the column-shift console from late-gen-3/early-gen-4 cars.

Check this LX out: http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?ct=u...ar_id=258698736

You'll find them in 1998-2001 Tauruses, usually very basic ones like an LX or an SE.
