Default Tilt or Telescope Steering Column

Hi,

I wanted to ask how do I find out if my car has a telefscopic or tilt steering column?
Maybe it has none of the above?

Here are some details to the car:

Production Date: 12/12/1966
VIN# 194677S105744

Tilt was NEVER a option in a mid year. Tele was how ever. But the vin will tell you NOTHING in the way of options. What steering column is in the car now.

that doesn't look like the telescopic wheel '****' that was on my 65, it was a 'knobby' hub under the horn button

Phil ... as Nowhere Man has already told you ... no such thing as a tilt column in a 67. Unless someone along the way installed an after-market one.

You know a picture is worth 1,000 words. Why don't you show us what you have?

Going for the trifecta - OP, your car does not have a factory tilt wheel. There were none made. Ever.
