does anyone have a pic of a stock column out of a car? I'm trying to find out how it is mounted compared to a maverick. I want to install a tilt column from Flaming River but they can't tell me if it mounts the same as the mustang, the only one they make a bolt-in replacement for. Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't think we're able to post pics in M&M anymore, are we?
Why don't you check out e-bay? They always have a few tilt columns in there, and I think they bolt in the same as the regular columns.
UPDATE: There are a couple in there right now. Go to "Other Parts" then enter "68 Mustang" in the search box. Isn't e-bay the greatest photo resource ever?

My guess would be that the column would closely resemble the 70 as that's the first Mav. The 65-7 didn't have a collapsible column. I recently acquired a 68 tilt for my project. Had contacted flaminag river and at that time the column splines were GM so a Ford wheel couldn't be used. I didn't want to have to use a "Grunt" wheel or whatever. They may have solved that problem by now.

Of course we can! There are pics all over the place.

Don't have a pic of a column, though.
