Q & A

What's in the Box

Now you can update your 1957 Chevy passenger car with a 5-way adjustable tilt wheel column. They accept a 1" DD U-joint or coupler and '67-'94 GM steering wheels or adapters. Keep in mind that a tilt column will move the steering wheel back about 2". If you are using a stock steering box you will have to modify it to accept a 3/4" DD.

Made from stainless steel tubing available in a paintable or chrome finish, with a transmission shifter.

Note: These columns are for use with 3 or 4 speed automatics (P-R-N-D-L) and will not work with stock iron PowerGlide transmissions.

American Autowire 35785 1957 Chevy O/E Wiring Harness
                        

This wiring harness adapts the OEM 1957 harness to the aftermarket Ididit column. The Ididit column uses the flat ribbon plug common to the later GM columns and should be adaptable to work with the later GM columns and other aftermarket columns using the GM ribbon style flat plug in. As always, wiring layout and sequence will need to be verified for each circuit.

  • Stock o/e harness to an Ididit steering column
  • Chevrolet Passenger 1957

Note: Adapts horn, directionals, hazard flasher to stock dash

 

Ididit 3000313449 Steering Coupler, 3/4 Inch-36 Spline to 3/4 Inch DD
                        

No-shift columns use 1" DD u-joints, while shift columns use 3/4"-36 spline u-joints. When using the original steering box, the input shaft will need to be cut and modified into a 3/4" DD.
