1971 Complete, solid Mercury Cougar / Mustang tilt column with no missing or cracked parts. Although they may look much alike, each year 1970 - 1973 is unique. Every column we sell has been disassembled and reconditioned by our full time in house tilt column specialist. If you do not currently have a tilt column do know you will get every part needed to make the conversion.
Often times we are unable to stock 1971-73 tilt columns due to not having tilt rag joints. We now offer a reduced price tilt column that does not need the 1971-73 tilt rag joints. Please see our related items for the ECONOMY version of this tilt steering column.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure you tell him WCCC sent you!

There is an active thread on the Classic Cougar Community Forum discussing tilt columns and trouble shooting.
*NOTE* For tilt column service, you can contact Tony Augustine at email@example.com. Tony is a trusted colleague of WCCC and we've sent many customers his way since our column specialist retired last year.
