$475 local for now. I may ship later if I can find good thick-wall tube.

Please respond in thread only per board rules, first "I'll take it" gets it.

Selling a painted and converted motorhome tilt column. From a mid 80s GM chassis

It has the straight shifter arm like a truck tilt

Also has the metal gear indicator and L1/L2 script lens like a truck tilt

I moved the NSS down so it's a bolt-in for your 67-72; I used my multi-meter to adjust it, you may need to fine tune it after install.

Turn signal and tilt levers are new from GMC Pauls

New GMC Paul's gear indicator

Turn signal switch is new

Good used cancel cam

The gray illumination wire is long

Includes a long pigtail for the Neutral Safety/Reverse switch

Tilt mechanism is tight and smooth.

The 4 bolts in the tilt mechanism that typically loosen over time have been removed and reinstalled with lock-tight.

Tilt pivots were cleaned and lubed when removed to tighten the bolts.

The bottom bearing was cleaned and greased

The upper bearings were cleaned and greased

The shift indicator bulb was replaced and tested OK, it has the green shade on it.

Shifter lever end (inside column) is good, pivot is good

Shift arm has nice chrome, it shines up well. There are 2 small ding spots, shown in the pics

The finish on it is base/clear coat gloss black.

The shift arm is metallic silver and includes the rubber bushing and metal sleeve

New firewall and dash gaskets from GMC Pauls

Firewall mount plate included, blasted and painted semi-gloss

If you need to ship it , Home Depot sells white plastic pipe with a bell on one end . Pipe has small drain holes along the length but is plenty strong for shipping a column . Cut it to length , slide the column into the big end , the top of the column just fits inside the bell, I taped thin plywood on each end and then wrapped the complete pipe in packing tape .
