Steering Column for a 29 Delivery Sedan

I'm looking to upgrade and update the steering column on a 29 Delivery Sedan. I'm not sure what currently is in the car (see picture) but the column tube measures 23 in long, and has a 2 1/4 inch diameter. The upper drop measures 9 in, the lower drop measures 7. There is an adapter that is 7 inches long that connects the steering column to the steering box (another picture). Any ideas. I've looked aftermarket but wow those prices.

Thanks in advance,
Ed

WELCOME to Hotrodders.com

I have used a early Chevrolet/GMC van tilt column in Model A's before ... I prefer the early to mid 70's ones. They have no key and have a P R N D L2 L1 indicator ... and they fit without modification to the column.



They are small and do not look out of place in a early car IMHO ...

Again WELCOME ...

Thanks for the welcome and quick response. Are those columns 2 1/4? I just checked the upper drop - it has been welded to the dash panel so no quick and easy change. I'm thinking if the column is a 2 in diameter I could buy some .125 shim stock and a 2 in OD pipe. Form the shim stock to the pipe then attach the shim stock to the steering column paint it all up and install it. Or is there an easier way?
