steering column for 40 ford

Guys, I recently bought my dream car, a 1940 Ford Cpe. it has a 302 cid Ford engine with C4 trans. The steering column is a 91 Taurus and its ugly. What could I use short of a 700.00 Ididit. Preferably a Ford column but smaller and neater than the Taurus.
Thanks----Howie

WELCOME to Hotrodders.com

As a Moderator here and the former owner of a 1940 Ford standard businessman coupe ... WELCOME ...

The column of choice for most rodders with a pre 49 Ford ... is the Chevy/GMC van with tilt. It is small ... about the correct length and has the P R N D L2 L1 on the column. Most also have the neutral start switch mounted on the column. They also do NOT have the ugly key in the column.





Early 70's to the late 70's ( maybe early 80's ) vans have them. Also some pickups up to about 1972. Usually some on eBay also.

40 Ford Column

Deuce;

Thank you for your reply on my steering column. I'm a 65 year old newbie to the hot rod scene. This is the car I've wanted since I was 15 so it only took 50 years to get it. I have a slight vibration on the idle and up to about 25 mph.
My buddy says its either the wrong flexplate or the wrong balancer. Its an
85 Mustang-5.0-H.O. I hope its the balancer since that will be easier to change than the flexplate.

Thanks again----Howie

Congratulations on getting your dream car ...

I sold my 40 Ford to get a 32 Ford 3W ... a car that I have wanted ever since I got my 32 roadster on the road.

I have very little knowledge about the 302 Ford engines ... I do know they are some different balance issues.

GOOD LUCK ...
