    Description

    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 6t8cougarguy@gmail.com

    Make sure you tell him WCCC sent you!

    Don Rush, owner of West Coast Classic Cougar.

    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 6t8cougarguy@gmail.com. Tony is a trusted colleague of WCCC and we've sent many customers his way since our column specialist retired last year.

    WCCC hooked me up with an original glove box cable and the correct screws WITH shoulders for my glove box. Their listing for these screws explains that the original screws have a shoulder for the cable and most people put in the wrong screws--which...

    I have been a cougar owner for just shy of 30 years, I have been dealing with part problems for a very long time. The people at WCCC have always be honest, and overly helpfull. I now have a 1970 XR-7 mostly rebuilt, and my son has a 1968 base...

    I have made many purchases online with WCCC but chose this time to make a 1400 mile round trip and visited them in person. I brought a van load of parts with me that needed a home. Don helped unload them then quickly assessed the value which I...

    I was having difficulty placing my order on the website and spent a couple of hours trying with no luck (ending in immense frustration). I decided to finally just call and order my parts over the phone (4 small items). Was surprised that Don Rush...

    Brake booster failed on our 1970 Mach1. We had ordered a new 2022 Mach1 to match the old one and the dealer wanted to use both cars in a promotional ad. When we received the replacement booster it failed within a few minutes of installation. I...

    WCCC makes finding the right part with the right fit easy. I love that they try to get great parts and when there are parts that don't meet their standard they WARN you up front! I've bought new reproduction parts from them, used parts and even had...
