I am doing a model A coupe myself and I used an
S-10 pick-up column. It seems like it will work nice but I'm still in the construction stages.

The Chevrolet/GMC van tilt column from the early 70's up to the 79 or so models are ideal. They are small in diameter, have the PRND2L on the column and have no ugly key. Later models have the neutral start switch down on the column in a almost hidden position. Early ones have the neutral switch mounted on the transmission ( my preference).
