I made this cupholder from some .060 aluminum and painted it with Hammerite rattlecan. It attaches to a couple of the screws holding the shifter trim. I have full size patterns if anyone is interested.

There is an older thread on the forum where a guy made a door seal for a 77 LTD because none was available.
He had no choice.
It came out better than I had originally thought.

What have I done?
For a number of vehicles, I have bought the very expensive reproduction rubber. I am not that talented or patient.
Then I treat all rubber and plastic with a conditioner. Knowing that it is very expensive.

An on line source may be the best way to find a cup.
Unless there is a local carb shop that may have misc pieces that you can dig through.

Is that a 1100?

Over the weekend i bought one on them vacumm gauges to see if it could tell me something about the running issues with the car.
i took some vid to show yall what is going on. so i dont know if its the carb or the valves or what????? there is a exhaust leak at mid point of the exhaust manafold due to a bolt that broke off in that area, so it blew out the gasket there. could that have cause all of this???

running at idle
vacumm gauge at idle
vacumm gauge at higher rpm

so question, there are 2 ways maybe 3 ways to get to the bolt that broke off at the mid point of the head that hold the exhaust manafold on. the bolt is directly across from the shock tower and there is no way to get a drill in there to drill it out and re tap.
option 1. take the motor mount bolts out, disconnect the shifting linkage, transmission mount and what ever else to tilt the motor towards the drives side to get the room needed.
option 2. take the head off and do the work on a bench
option 3. get a 90 deg drill and do the work without taking anything off. (i would have to buy one, so that wont happen)
so seeing the options written down, taking the head off looks to be the simplest way. i can also take a gander at the valves and other parts to do a good cleaning and or re seating if needed.

Taking the head off also provides the possibility of a better outcome.
The 90 degree drill has a lot of room for whoops and other 4 letter words.
Option one is a lot of work to gain a little access.

Yeah it will be a pain to RnR the head, but access the the trouble spot will be the best of all three. And you can inspect the valves and pistons. Plus you can paint the head and valve cover and make it look really nice once it is back together.

This thread is 100 posts long so I do not remember if the engine has been apart before. Or even if the engine is original.
If it is, you might consider replacing the valve stem seals. They are cheap. It is the labor that wouold make that job expensive. I have one of these cheap valve spring compressors. Can be had for less than $25.
