Checker Cab Steering Columns


Recommended Posts

Straight from the guy who built them... Checkers used a Studebaker column in 1966.  They switched to AMC non-locking columns from ’67 to ’69, and from ’69 to ’82 they used GM anti-theft locking columns.

 

Hope that helps.

That lines up well with what I thought.  What's the former Checker employees name?  I know a few of them.

His name is Jim Garrison, we are in the Kalamazoo Antique Auto Restorers Club together and I always enjoy talking Checkers with him.

I know Jim well.  He liked my Facebook post earlier today on the Barrett Jackson Auction, where I will soon post some AACA cars that where there.
