steering column + new wiring

Ive picked up a steering column out of a 66 buick special for my 39 chevy pu. and now im wondering about the wiring from the column. Is the wiring from the 66 buick column the same as whats offered on say the new Ididit or Flaming River columns. Painless and others offer new wiring harness that plug directly to a GM column but it doesnt say what years of GM columns.

I think Painless and the others offer wiring harnesses that plug in to GM columns that have the ignition swith located on the column.

What I did when I put my 51 Ford together was get a column and wiring harness out of a doner vehicle., in my case a 76 Nova. It has the ignition on the column. I didn't use most of the wiring, but cut the wiring of on each side of the firewall mounted fusebox. The wiring from the column went to the fusebox. I didn't cut these off, but left them as they were. This left the ignition and signals intact.
After that, it was just a case of using a wireing diagram and wiring up the rest of the accessories.
Needless to say, my truck doesnt have alot of options, but what is there works well.
