Armrests for cars from the 1950s FTW | Boing Boing

I urgently need this car armrest seen in the November 1950 issue of Popular Sciencee. Is the armrest safe? I have absolutely no idea, but it sure looks comfortable. I’m curious if there is an armrest on the other side too. This gadget makes a long day of driving seem much more bearable.

“An adjustable armrest, which is attached to the back of the front seat, ensures comfortable seating for the driver. The driving aid – a flexible metal rod with a movable cushion – fit in all cars. A small lever allows the foam rubber cushion to be adjusted to the most comfortable height and then locked in place. The metal rod is covered with fabric to prevent damage to the car upholstery.

Bring back the benches!
