Do you want Column or Floor Shift? Also do you want a Keyed one or one without a key?

i just got my automatic keyless tilt out of a Ford f250. I think it was an '89. But yes 70's,80's trucks and vans had them as a keyless option. If you want a keyed one just grab almost anything that fits close.
The most important thing would be if your looking for auto or standard then keyed or keyless.

I will run a floor shifter and i prefer to keep the key on th dash. So im looking for just a plain tilt, no shift, no ignition.

These guy both sell aftermarket unit to fit most any application. I am using a Ididit unit in my 57 Chevy 210 wagon and really like it.


Finding a tilt with no key and no shift might prove extremely difficut and expensive as most of the restoration guy are looking for them also.

I will probably end up with an aftermarket, but will keep a look out at the yards. Just wondering what years/models to look the hardest for. THANKS GUYS

As far as I know all of the chevy vans had column shift. Some of the pickups may have had floor shift but they put the key in the column in about 73 and the cars put it in in 69.
