A friend of mine has a 54 Champion coupe that he purchased. I am trying to help him with parts:
Looking for:
Complete steering column and shaft for the saginaw power steering with the automatic shifter
Outside rear bumper brackets
gauges/switches for GT dash
Door latch assembly, on door where door lock hooks up
vent window frame that attaches to door
Full flow V8 289
Brake/clutch combo plate and pad
rear view mirror
center rear console just the bottom section

Thanks,
Jim

Why does he want the parts to install a manual transmission, yet wants the steering column for an automatic transmission? Is that a typo?

What side of the car are the latches and vent windows for?

The door latch is pass side. He is installing a 289 with flight o magic. He has the power steering box

Why does he need "Brake/clutch combo plate and pad"?

My 53 has this setup. He has the brake and clutch pedal still in the car. Is there another way to do it? I still am new to all the different combinations.

The body and chassis parts catalogs answer all of these questions. One only has to purchase, read, and comprehend.

I think I figured out what Jim means Roy.
He wants the Huge "Brake Pedal and Rubber Pad" used on '53-'54 Automatic Cars that connects the Brake Pedal Shaft to the unused Clutch Pedal Shaft. :rolleyes:

Yes, that is what I have. I either need to get that pad or see if I can just remove the clutch pedal and make it work. Manuals can tell you things but not all if you do not completely understand the car. I was told tonight that they went to a single pedal in 55. I ask because I want to learn. You guys are better than the books. There may be better ways to do things. Through the forum by asking questions it looks like we could use a power steering steering column from a sedan or land cruiser. They are shorter but could be lengthened to work. The guides will not show that.
