I have a 1970 tilt wheel column which I purchased from Canada about 5 years ago. I paid $450 for it, U.S. The "head" on it has gotten sloppy which scared me - maybe a bearing going out. I just don't have the time or energy to fix it. I pulled it out and put the fixed column back in. I could be persuaded to sell it for the right money if you are interested in rebuilding it. From what I can tell from reading the catalogs, the bearings are available to rebuild it, but I can't swear to that. The column is painted parchment and has a new turn indicator switch in it which cost me $110 or so. Oh yes, the collar around the top has been attached by thieves in the past and is out of round. works ok, just doesn't look "pretty" . Price reduced accordingly. I haven't really thought about selling it cause it is nice to have in the car. Maybe 5 years from now I would have time to rebuild it. haha. Anyway, just a thought if it would help you out.
Rebuilding a classic mustang is a reality check on your individual state of perfection.
