4th Gen Column in 69

Changing around my dash and all my front suspension has been done, moved to a rack etc. I put a (32") Flaming River column in and it all bolts up nice. I like the idea of a key and wiper control off the column so I'm now thinking about putting a 4th Gen column in. I can handle the electrical part plus my new dash is mostly Gen4 also.

My questions are; what is the length of the column - does someone have one they can measure for me? And also, what fitting is on the end of the shaft?

Thanks for the help,
G.

Re: 4th Gen Column in 69

I havent ever mentioned but I'd imagine a 3rd gen would be a closer fit to O.E.

Re: 4th Gen Column in 69

Thanks for the input - any idea on the length of a Gen4 column or what fitting is on the end of the shaft?

Oh - and there's very little O.E. left in this setup anyway - LOL!
