Most of the vehicles I've seen at the shows, and in the magazines use the GM
van columns. Tilt, no key, you may have to remove the shifter. Good Luck.

I saw a 51-52 F1 which had a 340 or 360 in it once and it also had
Mopar suspension. It looked good and the guy said it ran great. I was
able to get a picture of it if you are interested.

I went for the TCI coil over shock suspension for my
'53. I bought an Ididit Chrome column, tilt, no shift,
no switch. This is a duplicate of a GM Van column and
has a double 'D' shaft. My mating shaft is double 'D'
to 3/4 - 36 spline. I bought my stuff from Mid-
Fifties in Arizona. Call them, they will even supply
used stuff if you don't have the $$ for Ididit. E-mail
me and I'll give you the phone #.

Can anyone tell me of a good source for headers for the 292? Is this a
worthwhile addition ie. significant, noticeable, horsepower increase? Any
suggestions?
