63 Corvette steering column

I am replacing the original steering column in my 63 with an Ididit tilt column and was wondering if anyone knows if the 63-67 and 68 steering wheel hub adapters are the same bolt pattern. My understanding is the only difference is the notch on the 68 hub.

I'm going to do the same thing with my '63 Vette. I planned on going with Flaming River. I talked to the rep at SEMA and they stated no adapter was needed.
Good luck on your swap.

My interest is in being able to use the later steering wheels, ie, post 68. They have a shallower dish, and smaller diameter, and are generally much cheaper. Guess, I'll call Ididit to get the answer.

Ididit's columns will use a 69+ wheel and adaptor.

This is a good thing when you consider some wheels pre-69 have a very deep dish.

On my 59 Elky, I had to trim the lower column bezel about 1" and use a 69+ wheel to put the steering wheel rim in the stock location.

That tilt mechanism adds a couple of inches to the length of the column.

(tilt and shift will add even more)

I have a 14 steering wheel I ordered from Summit. they stated it was to replace the midyear Vette steering wheel. I like it but I want the tilt for convience.
Good luck.
