1968 Barracuda Flaming River Steering Column

Average User Rating:
4.5/5,
  • First want to show a great product most folks could probably use, I'm glad these are reproduced my originals were crumbling:

    These are the part numbers for the column, application is supposed to be 70-76 A-body, but on their catalog page it says also fits 64-69 Barracuda.
    I bought FR21028PBK and had them add the laser cut to make the column collapsible.
    I also had them substitute the correct 11/16"-36 to 3/4" DD u-joint I needed for my Borgeson steering box.
    Column is their slip shaft direct fit style.

    Here is my new column bolted to the factory mounting bracket:

    Mounted in place, the shaft is obviously a bit long.

    Here is my 16 year old son cutting 7-3/4" off the end.

    This is the floor mount piece they sell:

    With the "old" dash and "old" pads mocked up:

    They also sell an adapter that allows you to mount a Tuff wheel:

    Here it is installed:

    New dash cluster and bezel if you have not seen them:

    Just FYI - they sell an aftermarket piece that goes under the column to cover the bottom, the piece they sell says it fits 67-69 A-bodies.
    It does not fit a '68!!! '68 style is on the left, aftermarket piece on the right. The '68 has to be different because of the lower dash pads.
    I sent it back...
