Talking best steering column for 29 Ford street rod

I am trying to piece together a 29 ford street rod. I need a steering column and box for it and am on a budget. I have looked at rodder magazines with new columns for sale specifically for what I am doing but would like to look at other alternatives. Would a column from a late model vehicle work with little or no changes to be made. Any suggestions on what you or others have tried would be welcomed. Thanks. Happy Thanksgiving!nullnull pikalpha@pell.net

Hi, I used a mid seventies saginaw 525 steering box non power from a Chevy but most of the GM mid size cars had them. I found a 66 chevy with a plain column in a local junk yard and the total came to $65 dollars for this cross steering set up. The only other parts are U-joints and steering shaft(not cheap). This went into my 31 Ford coupe. Both the Mustang and Saginaw will work the Saginaw may be eisier to find .good luck

I am building a 1928 Model A 2dr sedan, I am using a Steering collum from a 1970's chevy van. I went to 3 Rod builders around my area and they suggested the collum, also using a Chevy Vega gear box.
