Post mounting a GM steering column in a model a

i just got a steering column from an older gmc truck. it has column shift, and tilt. is there an aftermarket mount i can buy to adapt this to my 30 ford coupe. i know i can't just drill anywhere as the fuel tank is right there. also will it clear the brake pedal when installed. i have a frame mounted booster and master cylinder that comes through the floor.any help will be appreciated, and thanks to all that have answered my questions in the past! mike

One out of a pickup may be a little long but it will work with a little bit of fabrication. Before you start any fabrication I would pull the gas tank out if for nothing else to check it out to make sure it does not leak. There is a bracket made that you can use that is advertised in both Street Scene (NSRA) and the Goodguys Gazette(Goodguys). I would put my front seat in the car and then figure out where to put the column in place where it feels good to you, and then fabricate a mount that bolts it to the bottom of the dash. Sometimes a column shift doesn't work in a Model A due to the narrow chassis, but I have seen it done and it worked, may have to use cable linkage. Good Luck.
