1957 chevy truck steering column ?

Hello, I have another question on this pickup of mine. I was offered a tilt column from a mid to late 60's impala or nova. would this fit in my '57 chevy pickup or is it a waste of time? Thanks to all who respond. Marc

Depending on your welding and fabrication skills ... it can go in fairly easy. BUT it is not a bolt in deal. I have installed a few late 70's/mid 80's Chevrolet Van tilt columns in 55/57 Chevrolet pickups and they work out good.



I like using the van type because they have the P R N D L2 L1 indicator on them and have a neutral start switch. IF you are using a automatic in your pickup ... I believe the column you mentioned does not have the gear indicator on it

Either way ... you will have to connect the bottom of the column to the shaft coming out of the steering box. I use a Chevrolet Power steering box on my conversions ... so it is simple to make a shaft with a U-joint on each end to mate the shaft to the column.
