package tray or glove box

I've owned a 74 Maverick for 25 years and recently picked up a 72 Maverick. Not sure how I feel about the package tray. It might be because I'm used to seeing the dash with a glove box. Was wondering what others thought.

I swapped to a package tray in my '74. I kinda like the cheap Maverick look better.

Package tray looks good, but it sucks, you've got nowhere to put stuff, it flies all around, and slides from side to side in the package tray....

DITTO. I do prefer the look though. So I voted tray.

Package tray looks better but the glove compartment is more practical. I have had both and like the package tray better even though I am a practical person.

I have the look of the tray but miss the storage of a box. My near future plans include a center console i think.
