    your best bet is to measure yours and not rely on someone else measurements

    Take your time and consider all your options. Do you want a column shifter and the work to make it fit, tilt, ect ? Look at "I Did It " columns for ideas or consider other columns from standard cars to see what possibilitys are out there.

    Looks like it’s going to be a big job. I want the borgeson power/ steering box & tilt column. Might have to jack up engine to access steering box. Just gathering parts right now. So I’ll keep you posted. Thanx
