Snack Tray for Car Hangs From Dashboard (Nov, 1950)

Life before cup holders! I remember we used to have those plastic ones that stuck into the window sill. It seems a pretty obvious thing now.

Snack Tray for Car Hangs From Dashboard
Travel snacks can be enjoyed while the car is in motion with a dashboard tray which prevents cold drinks or water glasses from tipping over. The tray hangs from two cords which are held on the dashboard by suction cups. Bottles or glasses rest on two disks which are suspended below the tray on chains. When not in use, the tray can be folded into small space for storage in the glove compartment.

    When I was little I was fascinated by the little indentations in the inside of the glove box door lid of our 1962 Rambler. I always wanted to put a drink there but for some reason my folks didn’t hold the same excitement over the prospect that I did.

    I guess that the placement was geared towards use at a drive-in restaurant or an outdoor theater. I remember several cars we had in the 60s with them, but never paid attention to when they disappeared

    lol , OMG, I had the same reaction ! I always wanted my Mom to go through a drive through so I could get a Coke and SPECIFICALLY put it on the fold down glove box indentations. She never was quite as excited as me but humored me a few times as a young boy.
