Obviously this isn’t a direct attachment to the stock steering column. You’ll need to fabricate an intermediate shaft. This is pretty common in the street rod world and lots of vendors sell the double-D shaft and U-joints.

I’ve got a dilemma now with my 62 wagon(s). Do I spring for one of these (at a cost of more than I paid for both wagons together? On the other hand, it will probably be close to $1000 to rebuild the stock suspension, brakes, and steering anyway. Of course, then I need different rear axle shafts and brakes to get the 5 x 4.75 bolt pattern on the back.


Note that I can see both photos when I log in, and the press release is an MSWord attachment below the second photo attachment.
