1959-70 Column and Steering wheel info thread (new).


What do you guys think? How about putting together a post to gather some info on Columns, Steering wheels and the like? Some good info that we could use to understand what wheels and columns would work in out cars. Try to decipher what differences, between the GM makes and models? Will a USA Pontiac column or wheel fit a CP? Is a Chevy column the same as CP?.

Keep is simple. Post, discuss, argue what you know, post photos, any links to info. And after hashing it out, I'll bring what we can use over to this first post below. 

I'll start it out simple with some basic stuff, numbers, info, dimensions, pictures, links etc. Make changes as we go along. If the year and model shown has nothing written and you have some info (or even have that column handy), then add to the thread with a photo, some parts numbers, the length, discussion, suggested corrections, etc. I'll take what I can find as far as numbers from the CP and chev MPC (Master Parts Catalog) and add the numbers in as I find the time. I only have a CP back to 59, the Chev only back to 65. There won't be much to start, but I'll scour the net at least for some images and links, and keep up with maintaining the thread.

I will add Chevy II, Chevelle, Acadian, Beaumont, Tempest, LeMans, GTO as I move forward.

Suggestions are welcome, do I need to add any more to the lists?

Good idea?

Cheers, Mark.

Summary, and some interesting facts learned;

 

Steering wheels,

  • 64-65 Biscayne, Bel Air, Strato Chief and Laurentian use the same horn rim and horn cap assembly. Just different medallions
  • 64-65 Base model steering wheels share no part numbers regardless of the same horn ring. Same style...different colour tones?
  • 64 Impala/Parisienne use the same horn rim and horn cap assembly, different medallions.
  • CP's use the same signal lever 59-66 including the 63-66 tilt column. 63-66 Non tilt use a different lever

 

 

 

Steering Columns,

  • 1963 was the first year tilt was offered in a Canadian Pontiac
  • A 65-66 USA Pontiac tilt Column is proven to fit in a 66 CP
  • 1967 was the first year for federally mandated collapsible columns. By 68 all manufactures had to have it.

WOW WOW WOW

Super idea Mark and a great start with the for at that you have created I have a photo of my 67 Impala steering wheel.  STEERING WHEEL.jpg

I have the column  that I took out stored in my storage unit.  I will get that out and do some photos and measurements.

One thing I know for sure, the 65 US model (Catalina) tilt fit right into the black 66 Grande Parisienne I sold to Tom in Edmonton a few years back. I've heard they don't fit but it bolted in. I documented that in a thread somewhere. I will try to look for it tonight. The thread may have info in it that you want to include in your post.

Why did you change your column Cliff? A measure on the non tilt 67 would be great.

Wanted to spend some more money. ha ha There was a squeaking noise in the original column and the solution was an aftermarket tilt.

Not much to it, pretty simple. Anyone could do it with even less than backyard mechanics skills I would say.

Feel free to yank any info you want out of this and post it.

Hey Mark, from where to where are the measurements to be taken?

I'll have better pictures of a non-tilt that is out of a car that I will measure and take pictures of later.

Thanks Darryl, 

Great shots, showing off that 4 speed eh!

 

I'd think on the 64, the measurement would be from the lower shaft end (at the coupling) to the steering wheel shaft end.

Thanks, Mark

A similar situation: I installed a tilt from a 65 Grand Prix in mine, also bolted in - no issues.

Here's the measurement of the '64 Canadian Pontiac automatic and 3 speed standard steering columns from the bottom of the steering wheel hub onward (both are identical).
