FWD steering colmn for a model a

I'm looking for a good candidate for my model a. I've heard the new FWD cars are great to use. The car will be all Ford where at all possible . Some conversation with a rod shop says the FWD are shorter and have been used lately. Car has a 5.0 set deep in firewal and still has the original shorty headers . I think i see plenty of room but being first build im learning . It will be running a standard shift also .

Most columns made after 1980 or so are generally LARGE ... have the key in them and the newer FWD cars also have a air bag and limited interchangeability of the steering wheel ...

I try to use GM Van tilts for automatic on the column cars and early GM tilts out of floor shift cars ... for floor shifted cars. I read where you want to keep it ALL FORD ... so I suggest looking at a mid 60's Mustang ...

Duece thanks this part may be a chevy for the tilt no bag . I seen a astro van that the column looked short but didn't have a measureing stick with me . I have a mid 60's sitting next to it ill measure the column only downside no tilt . You are right the newer ones with the bags are bulky . My theme is to stay all Ford where possable but i have come to the conclusion i need to expand to american made vehicles.
