Steering Column Length
I'm building a 56 Ford Pickup from frame up. Does anyone know the length of a new steering I should order.

It will depend on the type of steering box you are using. My Ididit catalog recomends a 32" with original steering box, 35" with rack and pinion steering. From personal experience, if you use a Volare clip then a 30" will be your best choice. If you will be using a column shift trans then a 30" column shift is what you need regardless of the type of box.
Speedway Motors seems to have the best price on the 32" column. DO NOT buy from Southern Rods as these guys are rip offs in my opinion. I have had dealins with them.
