Differences in Factory tilt wheel columns, with pics, check it out
so in my quest to install a 100% (or as close to it) factory correct tilt column in my survivor 67 SS 350
I bought a 56998423 column off ebay which is a correct P/N for an early 67 car w/floor shift
I later found a 7803779 column allegedly taken from a low mile 68 which is a little better shape and has the correct original levers,,another piece that was eluding me.
I paid handsomely for it,,but that's the game I guess
7803779 is correct for a 67-68 as it supersedes the 56998423
yes I know as far as judging goes I would get dinged for the later P/N if they saw it
but visually they appear to be identical,,,,EXCEPT the 56998423 P/N column appears to be 1/2 in shorter? am I missing something?
I laid them both together and one is definitely shorter?? I don't understand why? maybe somone that is familiar with these could chime in?
the nicer column is in the back w/the orange sticker
any advice appreciated
