Steering Column

Does anyone have any thoughts on replacing the non-collapsible steering column on a 1966 Sprite with the collapsible column from a 68 Sprite? Pretty much most of the car is apart and if it's easily doable, now is the time for me to do it. Thanks for any help

It sounds like a good idea, but is not just a bolt in. I looked into this years ago. Your biggest problem is changing the sheet metal. The collapsible column is a larger diameter and requires a change to the top of the footwell sheet metal. Have a look at a 68 or 69 Sprite and you will see a bulge in the panel next to where the master cylinders are mounted. This is required for clearance with the collapsible column.
