1959-1960 Impala El Camino Tilt Column Shift Steering Column - Polished
This retrofit column is designed to fit your 1959-60 Impala El Camino and does NOT require modification to your original vehicle to install. Simply remove your old column, saving your original under dash mount and floor mount. Using an ididit installation kit, install your new steering column in place of the old. These columns come complete with a neutral safety switch (shift indicator not included). 1959-60 columns will match the dash perfectly using the original bezel. 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 shift linkage (new or original) is required for installation and will attach to the lower shift arm provided on the column. Add an aftermarket wheel (using an adaptor) or original wheel but keep in mind that an aftermarket wheel may push the wheel closer to the driver and the original wheel will increase the overall length of the column towards the driver.

1959-60 El Camino - Installation Kits
This kit includes all the necessary parts you will need to install the column to the gearbox. All you need to know is the diameter of the gearbox input shaft and the number of splines.
We had the builder on a budget in mind when we designed this kit. The original joint and intermediate shaft are used. The shaft will need to be cut and modified to match the 3/4" DD u-joint. Due to age, the original rag joint may be worn so please double check to make sure it is in good condition. ididit, inc. always recommends replacing the rag joint.
For vehicles with an original factory harness, a 4-way flasher kit is included in your installation kit. This 4-way flasher kit will not only add safety to your vehicle, but will also convert your original wiring harness to the 3 7/8" plug found on your ididit column.
Many aftermarket wiring companies offer replacement harnesses that incorporate a 4-way flasher unit as well as the flat 3 7/8" plug. If you are using one of these harnesses, a 4-way flasher kit is not necessary.
