Steering column wiring

I have a used tilt steering column out of a Chevy van. The wiring exits from the end of the tapered tube that the shift lever is attached to and moves with. These wires then hang loose down the column. I think the wires were removed from column when turn signal switch was replaced and this was the easiest way to reinstall them. Is this wiring supposed to continue down the inside of the steering column hidden from view? I am going to install this in my 39 Ford and don't want these wires to show.
Thanks for any information.

The aftermarket columns run the wires inside, the stockers run the wire outside, and have various covers that snaps over the wires, dependent on the application.

There are a couple of companies making covers for those, there was one cheap one that was causing fires, but I can't remember which one.

I know Speedway makes a plastic cover, part # 910-32601 and I think that one is OK.

Hope this helps,

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

Thanks Mikey, I guess that GM was not thinking of hot rods when they designed the wire routing for their steering columns.
