If you're talking original...they're up on eBay all the time but they're pretty pricey.

They're on layitlow.com everyday. And yes, bring cash.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

Make sure you get both collars. The column is worthless without them and they are not available.

The correct tilt collars can cost as much as the tilt column.

I have a tilt tele in my 66. I do not have the bottom plate for my collar section - you don't really notice the bottom is missing but I have kept my eye open and they are expensive. Also I do not have the vinyl circular horn cap - I have a cap from a 66 chevelle that was installed and looks pretty good -but I would love to have the correct horn cap. any ideas?

I had heard that the tilt tel column collars are different than the regular tilt collars. Shorter. Good luck finding that one.

From the old days: A 1965 Chevrolet Sport Coupe, column shift, 3-speed automatic with the following: A 1966 Chevrolet B-car T&T column, correct lower shroud and housing. 1967 Oldsmobile squeeze rim (horn blow) T&T steering wheel and Oldsmobile telescope lock hardware.

Many of the steering wheel, telescope lock, and horn mechanism parts could be interchanged between various Saginaw steering column models.

That car has been gone for about 45 years now. I sure wish that I had it back. Working for Saginaw Steering Gear (a Division of General Motors), we had those kinds of steering parts just laying around.
