Does anyone know what tilt steering column would fit my 63 Nova 400 with out going to a after market product. Any help would be appreciated.

A tilt column from a 72-78 Chevy van works good and looks factory. I've got one in my 64. It takes a little work, modifiying and a little fabrication, but it can be done. This column looks very similar to the aftermarket ones from flaming river ot Ididit.
Do you have the original stock steering box or are you going to upgrade the steering and suspension?

I have seen S-10 columns adapted into Novas as well.I think Wayne Bushey did a tech article in Nova Times about the S-10 swap years ago

Heres a link to my " how to " article that I posted here a few months back.

I coupled mine to a MII rack and pinion steering, but the modifications to the column itself are the same. you'll just have to cut off the steering shat from the stock box leaving 1" to file a DD end to match the one filed on the column and couple it with a 2" section of matching DD tube shaft in conjunction with set screws or pins on the box and column shafts.
