55-56 Chevy Bel Air, 55-56 Chevy Nomad, Direct Mount Type, Tilt Column Type, Dash Key Location
Add the convenience of a column shift to your classic! Available with 8-position tilt or space-saving straight. This column comes complete with a neutral safety switch, as well as everything you'll need to use your original dash indicator (aftermarket shift indicator sold separately). The shift pattern on the column allows you to use either a 3 or 4-speed automatic transmission (except early Powerglides, as they have a reverse pattern transmission). A solid shift linkage (new or original) is required for installation and will attach to the lower shift arm provided on the column.
