If you do not want tilt, why not stick with a stock column? If you don't have a column it should be easier and cheaper to find an original. Just my thoughts.

I do have stock with shift lever (which I don't need) but not in good condition and I have cpp 500 box so it needs some cutting and new bearings and turn signal mechanism has seen better days etc....

Mikko, be careful with the 'universal fit columns". I started with one on wife's 55, and where the wires come out of the col., they are too high up. Right where the col. clamps to the dash. The neutral safety sw. is also in the wrong place. The brake pedal will hit the sw. If you don't need tilt, lots of venders have a col. made for the tri-fives. If I were you, I would look for one made for your car...Ididit, Flaming River, CJ's, or some of our sponsors. :anim_25:

its my understanding

that it IS the tilt assy in the chinese columns, that are the problem.
not saying the rest of the column is good or bad,
I used one in my 60 el camino (non tilt) and it worked great.
( from speedway) I had no issues with switches, wires, mounts etc.
but everything was modified , so direct bolt in wasn't a concern.
