Enjoy the Drive Once Again

In the 1950s a tilt steering wheel was a scarce reality saved for luxury cars and exotics. If you did not fit well between the steering wheel and the seat tough cookies! It does not have to be that way today for your '55-'56 Chevy. Get behind the wheel and drive again in comfort with a Speedway Motors '55-'56 Chevy Tilt Steering Column.

A Premium Tilt Column with All the Features You Want

Old tilt columns are just that-old! Do not waste your time in a salvage yard digging around for a steering column for your project that will undoubtably need a complete rebuild. Not to mention it most likely will be too long or too short for your application.

Using one of our '55-'56 Chevy tilt steering columns is the way to go. This is not just any old aftermarket steering column either. Manufactured with all new parts in a compact design, the small 2-inch diameter steering column tube and compact tilt head that is just 7-inches in length provides copious amounts of leg room while fitting nicely within the dash.

The five-position tilt head allows 30 degrees of tilt, 20 degrees up and 10 degrees down from straight. This tilt function not only provides the perfect angle for personal driving comfort but can facilitate easier ingress/egress with a simple flick of the tilt lever.

Our '55-'56 Chevy tilt steering columns are modeled after the GM 1969-1994 specifications for steering wheel spline, turn signal wiring, and more. An industry standard. We use a 1-inch double-D (DD) steering shaft for connecting to your stock steering box. A1-inch DD to 3/4-inch DD coupleris required when retaining the stock steering box and the steering box input shaft requires cutting and modification to a ¾-inch DD configuration. For aftermarket steering boxes or rack-and-pinion conversions we offer a multitude ofU-joints and steering shaft componentsto facilitate connecting your new column. We also offer this column in afloor shift version.

Direct Replacement for Your '55-'56 Fixed Column

Our '55-'56 Chevy Tilt Steering Column arrives in a plain steel finish ready to be painted to your specific interior color scheme and ships with cleanly styled chrome-plated control levers for the turn signal switch, tilt mechanism, shift lever, and hazard light switch. If you prefer, we offer our column in achrome versionas well. The 2-inch OD column tube allows it to be easily secured to your dash using the original upper mount. We recommend one of the lower mounts listed below to aid in your installation.

The standard GM steering wheel spline means any 1969-1994 GM steering wheel is a direct fit, or you can purchase asteering wheel adapterto aid in fitting your 3-, 5-, or 9-bolt wheel to your new column. Our steering wheel adapterbuyer's guidewill help you find the proper fit.

Our '55-'56 Tilt Steering Column uses GM steering column wiring connectors. The standard 3-7/8-inch turn signal switch connector even uses stock GM wire color codes. This makes our column a direct plug-and-play electrical connection to any vehicle that has been upgraded with anaftermarket wiring harness. For '55-'56 Chevy vehicles with factory wiring, you can easily adapt your turn signal wiring by installing one of the year specific jumper harnesses, which will also give your Chevy easily accessed column activated hazard lights.

Included with our '55-'56 Chevy column shift application are straight and offset shift arms that will connect and work with most 3- and 4-speed automatics. We even include a factory-style neutral safety/backup light switch at the base of the column! For newer 3- and 4-speed transmissions we offerupdated shift indicators, both universal and direct fit in-dash options, for your car.

If the original fixed steering column is preventing you from enjoying your '55-'56 Chevy, then upgrade to our '55-'56 Chevy Tilt Steering Column today and drive your vehicle in comfort. Your knees will thank you for it!
