How big a deal would it be to retro-fit a late 67, 68 collapsible 2-piece steering column and box to my '65? What about the column wiring connectivity to the main harness? Are the one-piece steering shafts on the early cars really considered to be a safety harzard? thanks, Todd.

It's a metal spear aimed at your chest, so I'd say so...

You can do anything with enough time and money.

might work. might be more trouble than it's worth ! The dash is enough different that I think that you might have alot of trouble making everything work.

Excellent! It took about 45 minutes, but I went through my old magazines in the garage and found that issue. Looks like it will work with a little effort.
thanks again,
Todd
