Hey folks,
I've got '67 Camaro ragtop that I'm restoring and would like to switch to a tilt stering column. She has power steering, if that matters as well. I would like to buy one,but don't know what I need(parts) and what to beware of. I guess I'm looking for general advice. Thanks! Hank [img]graemlins/beers.gif[/img]

Boy,

Who is it, Idiots or however they spell their name makes a true aftermarket, but it isn't a stock unit, but does work good from what I have read.

Plus, I think you can modify an early A-body column to fit if I remember right.

Look in the BOP's at the Boney-- Er, Recycling Yards, b/c they probably had more then the Chevy's due to being more upscale if you get my drift...

I ordered tilt on mine new so never had this problem. pdq67

Cool

I would also check out Flaming River as long as the key is not in the column.
