So I had searched here and across the Internet looking for a good way to mount my phone in my '68, and didn't really come up with much. Thought I would share what I have landed on that works really great and puts the phone in the perfect spot (at least in a 67/68, not sure how it would end up in other years).

Initially I didn't have a radio or A/C and started with a sticky / ring type mount and a Bluetooth speaker, which looked like this:

742406


Phone was in a good spot, sound was OK, but the phone wobbled around a lot and everything was kind of a pain to set up before driving. Once I got A/C, I couldn't put the phone there anymore so I ended up with this:

742408


It still worked but the phone was way out of reach and just a pain to use, plus it just looks unattractive when the phone isn't there. So then I got this (Amazon.com: Car Phone Holder, Zylee Dashboard Car Phone Mount Phone Holder Cell Phone Clip for Car Dashboard Compatible with iPhone XS/XS MAX/XR/X/8/8Plus/7/7Plus/6s Galaxy S10/S9/S8/S7/Note 9 Google Pixel):

742410


It did NOT work clipped on to the dash pad like it's designed for, but worked great clipped into the empty radio hole upside down with the phone mounted below. Then I installed an actual radio so that wasn't an option anymore, but I thought this is the perfect place for the phone to be, how can I make this work? So I cut off the part that clips to the car, zip-tied a Bagnet (Jennifer Bagnet – Bagnet™) (thanks wife!) to it, and it sticks solidly to the dash, holds the phone great in the perfect spot, and is easily removable for shows:

742415


So maybe this will give some other folks some ideas on what to do with their phone in their classic Mustang besides stuffing it in the carpet seam (which I did for a while but damn it got hot). BTW I also used a Bagnet to attach the Bluetooth unit to the trans tunnel, pretty useful things.

Great idea! I've never found a good place to put the phone in the car. That's a great place to hang it to be able to glance at it for the navigation and it's close to the cigar lighter for power.
