I used a sterring wheel out of an 80’s Firebird. It is a tilt wheel only. I don’t believe you will need a telescoping wheel. Remember the interior of this car is akin to an old VW bug. I would not suggest a column shift either, as it will requre linkage installation. With the large engine you are installing, this could give you fits. Also and upmost, make sure you get the loom plug mate for the electrics. It will cost you more, the guy at the wrecking yard cut the loom off as long as possible for me (he gave it to me free). Then all you have to do is mount a terminal strip on the dash side of the firewall and do your splicing there (The column will have a plug that mates to the loom plug.)

That certainly is a thought Joe, that is, not needing a telescopic wheel. I’m mocking up the three models I have and will determine what works best in the space available in the Vicky. At the moment, the wheel from a GM van is short and loaded with features – with a little luck, it might represent a viable alternative to seriously consider.
