This is my most 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 driving a Pony car that does not have this option anymore. This column does not only manually adjust up and down with the depression of the turn signal wand, 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 often 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, chrome emergency flasher knob and 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.
There is an active thread on the
Classic Cougar Community Forum discussing tilt columns and trouble shooting.
*NOTE* WCCC services all FoMoCo tilt and tilt-tilt away steering columns 1967-1979. Our shop rate for this service is $90 per hour and most columns with serious problems do need complete tear down and build up which usually takes 3-4 hours plus the cost of any replacement parts needed. To offset the cost of your rebuild, you can send us additional parts or parts columns and we will give you an in store credit. Turn around time is usually one week but rush orders can be accomplished. For more details call us at 503-463-1130 and ask for Don W.
