steering box

I once bought a 1935 Chevy two door standard sedan. Pulling into the driveway at my parent's house the steering box fell apart. One of the bearings just died. I was convinced that I was outta luck on my $35 car, then the next morning a buddy and I went to the local dealer and amazingly the current (about 1968) steering box used the same bearings, so for about $6 I was on the way to being fixed. Later after installing a souped up 327 I bought another steering box at a junk yard for $12. I had to make a few mods so the steering arm would fit and it did. The box I bought at the junk yard was from a 1950 or so Chevy pickup, same box.
