This is my favorite Cougar - Mustang - Shelby option of all time! In fact as a rather tall person that is not as slim as I once was, I do not really enjoy daily driving a Pony car that does not have this option. This column does not only manually adjust up and down with the depression of the turn signal wand towards the dash, it also releases and swings up and towards the passenger side of the car each time the ignition is turned off and the door is opened. To start the car you must close the door and pull it back down into the original position. We almost always have to combine parts from three cars to get one complete, working unit that includes the vacuum storage can under the battery tray, unique steering coupler (rag joint), under dash wiring harness, unique secondary door jam button, relay, vacuum actuator, pull cable, brackets, turn signal cancellation cam, emergency flasher bezel, wiring cover, spring and correct hardware. We always pull the collar to clean, lubricate and check for cracks before shipping. Turn signal switch is included but not tested or guaranteed.
Helpful diagram and trouble shooting manual is included.
*NOTE* For tilt column service, you can contact Tony Augustine at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tony is a trusted colleague of WCCC and we've sent many customers his way since our column specialist retired last year.
WCCC no longer has an in-house service for tilt and tilt-tilt away steering columns 1967-1979.
After 2 years of working exclusively with Tony Augustine in MO, we can highly recommend him as one of the top most knowledgeable builders of these unique columns in the world.
We now exclusively send all of the columns we sell as rebuilt to Tony for service.
He can be reached at 816-210-4779 or email@example.com
Make sure you tell him WCCC sent you!
