Old army trucks don't seem to have cup holders. When you go grab a burger for lunch there is literally nowhere to put the drink. And these old things are a double handful to drive. So, I made one that bolts to the steering column.
11/12/2015 - Found that in hot weather, the plastic will relax and cause the cup to want to rotate on the steering column. The result of this is having your drink poured into your lap.
The fix : Redesigned the strap so that it can go over a hose clamp. Now you put a hose clamp on the steering column and it locks the rotation of the cup holder. I'll get a picture..
2/14/2018 - Yes it also fits the WWII WC series Dodge army trucks. I have on on my WC53 Carryall : https://www.eskimo.com/~jimlee/Home/Carryall_Blog/Carryall_Blog.html
I printed it 2 shells, 20% infill. Its set up for #8-32 screws & #8-32 nylocks. I forget the length of the screws, 1" ? 3/4"? But you do need one really long one to help seat the nuts into the hex holes.
11/12/2015 - #16 Hose clamp. (For 1 1/2" hose) For locking the holder's rotation to the steering column.
5/4/2016 - Screws are 1" and the long one to align the nuts is 2".
