07-25-2009 12:56 AM 1940 column shifter
I plan to use an automatic overdrive (700R4) rather than a 3 speed manual transmission. So one of the shifter arms is cut off and the other is heated and bent for the new shift linkage. Lastly a bearing is added to the bottom of the column & a hole in the shifter column rod is tapped and the shift lever pinned so the upper lever no longer moves in the old "H" pattern.

I like the look of the old Ford column, but would also like a more modern steering box for better road manners. So the column gets cut loose from the old steering box.

07-25-2009 12:35 AM Column Bracket
Needed a way to mount the 1940 steering column to the 1932 dash. A 1940 steering column was a popular hot rod modification in the 1950's because it was the first year Fords came with a column shifter, rather than a floor shifter. Maybe a popular mod also cause it allowed your girlfriend to sit closer. ;~)

Built this spacer/defroster duct which spaces the dash back from the body bulkhead & allows for a defroster duct, which Henry Ford forgot to put in the car in 1932.

Cut an opening in the dash for a 6 gauge panel instead of the stock 3 gauge set-up
