Econo Auto shifter column

Just wondering if anyone has installed one of these into an early Econo and how difficult it is...such as; are there any modifications that need to be done or is this a pretty straight forward bolt-on installation.

Thanks,

vanny

Will let you know. I have a 28" that I'm installing in mine. Having built a few other rods and t-buckets, you learn how to modify and make things work. Honestly, it looks like it's going to be easier than the last t-bucket.

I had a spare 32" column and it really sat too high by the time you added a steering wheel and adapters, (if needed). The 28" sets in just right, and closest to stock height.

C'mon Vanny, nothing is ever easy with these things! If it was, everybody would have one. LOL.

Thanks wolfster I would love to hear how it works out for you...Jim, I was hoping I maybe stumbled onto a somewhat easy swap... it could happen, right??? I guess it's like a treasure hunt...like the curse of Oak Island! LOL
