I really hate having to swing my leg under the wheel when I get in . Wife doesn't mind but I do . Especially if making frequent stops . If I get a column from a 5spd car will I have a problem with not having the A/T lock out ? I drove around with an automatic column on my 5spd Jeep for years until a buddy gave me a std column . I just zip tied the column into unlock all the time so I could remove the key w/o any fuss . What would be the result of the std column in an auto car ? You could start/shut the car off in gear ? I have a line on one but he does not know what it came out of . Just that it's an 87-89 Fox with tilt/CC . Do the auto parts swap over .
