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 '47-'54 Chevy truck. Get behind the wheel and drive again in comfort with a Speedway Motors '47-'54 Chevy truck Tilt Steering Column Kit.

As seen in Classic Trucks Magazine's Week to Wicked build, this kit features one of our beautiful chrome plated tilt columns along with all the hardware to make it a bolt-in to your '47-'54 Chevy truck's dash and firewall and connect it to most aftermarket steering setups.

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 '47-'54 Chevy truck tilt steering column kits 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 '47-'54 Chevy truck tilt steering column kits 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 steering box or rack.

Direct Replacement for Your '47-'54 GM Truck's Fixed Column

Our '47-'54 Chevy truck Tilt Steering Column kit arrives in a beautiful chrome plated finish ready to make your interior color scheme pop and ships with cleanly styled chrome-plated control levers for the turn signal switch, tilt mechanism, and hazard light switch. The 2-inch OD column tube allows it to be easily secured to your dash using the polished aluminum column drop mount provided. The included steel lower mount secures the base of the column for a bolt-in installation.

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

Our '47-'54 Chevy truck Tilt Steering Column Kit uses the standard 3-7/8-inch turn signal switch connector and 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 an aftermarket wiring harness. For '47-'54 Chevy trucks with factory wiring, you can easily adapt your turn signal wiring by converting your old harness connector over to match using our wiring connector kit.

If the original fixed steering column is preventing you from enjoying your '47-'54 Chevy truck, then upgrade to our '47-'54 Chevy truck Tilt Steering Column today and drive your vehicle in comfort. Your knees will thank you for it!
