Made to Order.
This is a work of art. It's an aluminium steering column designed to suit the Ford XK and XL models with either a steering box or a front mounted rack & pinion. It is manufactured from machined 6061 T6 aircraft grade billet aluminium, and then highly polished.
Each steering column is COLLAPSIBLE, so it will comply with ADR 10 rules. It has left and right self-cancelling indicators and the widely available 9 hole billet or 6 hole aftermarket steering wheels will fit right on this as the column also comes supplied with either a 6 or 9 hole steering hub and full horn contact support. Alternatively, if you plan to fit an original Ford XK or XL Steering Wheel and Hub, then select this from the available options.
Because the XK and XL Falcon originally had a 'one-piece' steering shaft and steering box, this column is designed to suit vehicles that have had a change of front end with a rack and pinion. The original steering box however can still be retained if preferred, but the steering box will need to be modified. We can provide instructions to you on how this can be carried out at your end, or you can send the steering box to us and we can perform the work for you for an additional $120. The steering box would then be sent back to you together with your new column, once it is all finished.
All of our XK - XL columns are built with double sealed roller bearings, a 4140 High Tensile precision ground centre shaft, fully machined housings and body using 6061 T6 aluminium, a lower column support bracket, bush and grommet to suit the factory firewall plate.
We can also help you with an intermediate shaft if required. Please contact us for more information on this.
Additional options include High & Low Beam toggle with High Beam Flasher which can be selected from the build options menu.
Our columns come standard with a highly polished finish, however if you plan to paint the column yourself, choose the Linished Finish option. Alternatively we can have the column painted for you in a Satin Black.
Please let us know if you need your column customised further than what the options here allow. We can cater to most requests (length changes etc).
Please note, the column is not supplied with a under-dash mounting bracket as you use your original dash clamp mount and will clamp straight onto the column.
There's no cutting or modifications required to the vehicle structure to fit this, it goes straight in. All you will need is an auto electrician to wire it up as some electrical changes on the car may be required.
*The universal joint pictured is not included with the column, as it is intended to illustrate where a uni joint will fit onto the column. Universal joints can be purchased separately if needed.*
Please note this column is not a column shift. It is for floor shift.
This is the only billet steering column made in Australia. The other major brands of columns are actually a fabricated column made from stainless sheet metal and they are also often made in China. We have seen their columns fail time and time again (imagine getting caught out somewhere with a broken steering column as they often have weak plastic internals).
Each steering column is made right here in Australia and is made to order. Please allow approximately 10-12 weeks from order & payment to completion & despatch as each column is completely custom made. Your Billet Works Steering Column will be made for YOU.
