The Ford Mustang HumpHugger, as the name states, fits between the factory bucket seats and securely rests on the transmission tunnel (the “Hump”). The key word in this product name is “Cruiser”, as it represents a full-length console. It utilizes the entire space between the OE bucket seats. Starting from slightly behind the front seats all the way forward past the gear selector.
The exceptional quality and convenient features built in to this console will bring a whole new dimension to your cruising life style. Standard features include a padded armrest, ergonomically designed for maximum support and comfort, coupled with an under-lid storage compartment. another key feature, possibly the most important, are the two drink holders. You have the option to choose two large drink holders (standard) or upgrade to the new Mega size drink holder.
Because there are subtle changes in the vehicle support system between a coupe and convertible, we offer two versions of this console. One specifically designed for a coupe, fastback or sedan and another for convertibles. Choose the correct version under the dropdown “Style” selector when ordering.
Although the name states Mustang, this console will also fit the Mercury Cougar. One important note, this console will NOT work if you have a factory (OE) console already installed. We also offer a shorter HumpHugger version, click here for more detail.

Vinyl Color Options
With our large selection of in-stock automotive grade vinyl, you are sure to find the right color and grain to match your vehicle. We can even use your own material to cover any console design, no extra cost to you. In most cases, we’ll only need one yard of material to fully cover most console designs. Optional two-tone colors are available for most console designs whether you are choosing from our vinyl selection or providing your own material.
In addition to the standard color options, we offer a host of premium vinyl colors which are available for an additional cost of $16.00 per console. These colors are limited and unique to certain vehicle models and years. The additional cost is due to their random availability and the premium cost to obtain from suppliers. If these vinyl options are listed on the product page colors then they are currently available for your console.
Vinyl Samples are available to make it easier to pick the right color or grain. We’ll ship the sample at no cost, directly to you.

Drink Holder Options
The drink holders in our consoles are made from durable, long-lasting polymers that will provide many, many years of functionality while retaining the striking appearance you expect from Classic Consoles. All drink holders come standard with a black finish around the top rim. The top rim is the area of the drink holder predominately seen when the console is installed in your vehicle so we offer you the option of four additional distinct colors & finishes to customize your console or match the existing trim package of your vehicle’s interior.
Our large-sized drink holders are included with this console, they accommodate virtually all types of soda & energy drink cans, most plastic water bottles and larger coffee cups. The bottom half of our large drink holders have a unique step down shape to allow smaller drink containers a secure hold while the upper half is large enough to hold bigger beverages with larger diameters.
You also have an option to upgrade the Large Drink Holders in this console to our brand new Mega Drink Holder. The Mega Drink holder is specifically designed to hold large, insulated beverage containers by maintaining a wide diameter from top to bottom and does not “step down” like the Large Drink Holder. We built the Mega Drink Holder as a special request from many of our great customers who wanted a better fitting drink holder for their large insulated mugs, like many of the Yeti styles.
