Originally was going to do the motor build on my original 36K 350 and then the 700R trans.

Went out for a drive today and my 3 on the tree started to get funky ( not wanting to go into 2nd ) ; momentary challenges and the first challenges since bringing it home in October.
Instead of messing with the linkage etc. will do 700R trans first.

frrske1 was Awesome by letting me know I could " HAVE " HIS MID 1980'S COLUMN he had out of a doaner. A lot of mods to do so I believe it is better to keep the "Good Karma Train" going and let another Chevy Vanner with a mid 80's van take the column.

I started searching for a tilt column shift for my 74' and came across: steering columns galore inc. out of Brewster New York; 30+ years father & son shop.
seems legit. Going to give them a call when they open back up on Monday.

Has anyone done business with them ; Any feedback? Thanks Mickey chevy .

Right on Jim. Appreciate the offer. Want to go stock black column; My plans are to make it a clone of my "1st" 74' G10 Shorty I had back in the day.

Did you ever let go of your old school Chevy ? I forget who posted the pics of it back on a run; it was sweet Brother. My first was a 1967' then my 1971; my Favorite 1974 G10 Shorty and now decades later:
Truck n' again with my "New" 1974 G10 shorty I was so fortunate to discover. I went on so many wild goose chases and traveled far tjhe last 2 years until that lucky day last October.

Like lukester's Good Vibes: I'm keeping my original 350 ( 36,241 "Original Miles" chevy ) and doing a nice build and a 700R trans.

I'm so stoked. I can't wait to go on my 1st run.

I also want to do the Doug Thorley side pipes, Does anyone have a connection or shop to refer ? I don't remember where I saw it; they showed a guy who customized his van with pipes from a diesel exhaust stack !
All info and experience is Always appreciated . Thanks Mickey
