My recently acquired '94 Caprice wagon has NO cup holders! REALLY?! Geez! Don't think I could live without the Buick's center arm rest/ cup holder/storage capacity. Since both of my wagons have the same color cloth interior, I was thinking of swapping the center arm rests before I sell the Buick.
So, before I go to the trouble of removing them, I was wondering if they are a straight forward swap.

Easy switch, just remove 4 nuts and swap them.

The buyer for your RM will be unhappy. They are not that expensive. You should try to find one. What color is your interior?

Both wagons are a light blue cloth interior.

The easiest way is four nuts from the bottom.

Thats strange that your Caprice doesn't have the cupholder under the AC controls.....you know the cupholder that bounces like hell and spills your drink all over the place!

I constantly find myself with my cup between my legs. Its easy to find, and it does not bounce as much.

I have had several sodas fall out of the holder and all over my front seat! Drives me insane.

Maybe you didn't notice the pull out tier above the ashtray......It's okay for a small styro cup (1/2 full) as long as the road is smooth
