Pretty sure that's a standard ratio box for a 65 tele column, so someone may be a bit disappointed? Column does look to be in good shape, tho!

I just read the relisting and the seller said that he had mistakenly listed as a QS box,so he relisted the sale as tele column with regular box. Still looks like a good column.

The lash adjusting screw is high and showing a lot of threads. This is a good sign!

The simulated wood wheel has about 8 cracks in it, so that is going to be very difficult to restore, if not impossible. My bet is that the column is going to be purchased by a Corvette person, because that is where the deep pockets are, and this column can be converted for Corvette use. Conversion costs between $500 - $700, but the column is then worth about $2800 retail. I sold all of my Corvair telescopic columns to a Corvette vendor / restorer for more than $500 each, and that was over 10 years ago. They just don't seem to come to market very often now.

The 65 column IMHO is not worth as much as a 66 column as it will only fit the 65 tele column specific steering box. There were also 12,569 cars produced with it (not including service replacement items).
The 66 column is much more desirable because you can use it with ANY late 65 and 66 steering box including the quick steering box. It is also much rarer with 2,248 tele columns fitted in 1966.
My opinion is that a 65 column is worth roughly half of a 66 column and even then, it is only worth it if it comes with the special steering box.
$900 for a 65 column with cracked wheel and no box is not a good deal.

I tried for it but missed out. Almost 40 years of Corvairs and never had one.

If you must have stock, be prepared to pay. For a lot less money, you can have a tilt column with built-in 4-way flashers. You can even use the 2-spoke GM wheel and factory horn button. No need to be flashy about it. Just not-quite stock. PS a 65 tele-column will easily fit a 66 steering box.

I 65 tele column is NOT a bolt on without making a custom steering shaft to adapt it. Unless that is what you were angling at and failed to mention.
But using a stock 65 column and a stock 66 style steering box; no they will not simply bolt together.

Could someone edit the responses above to reflect the two different not optional 65 steering columns in relation to the optional telescopic steering columns?? confused smiley

Was there an early 65 telescopic column that had different column / shaft/steering box than the standard early 65 column / shaft / box?

Then was the late 65 telescopic column / shaft (upper and lower)/ box different than the early 65 telescopic steering column / shaft (U & L)/ box?

Then was the late 65 telescopic steering column/ shaft / box different than the 66 telescopic steering column/ shaft / box?

You guys make it sound like in the two years, 65 and 66, there were five different steering boxes, 5 different columns (visible part in the interior), 5 different upper and 5 different lower shafts.......confused smiley

Early and late 65 tele columns are different. The early uses a steering box with 14.5" shaft. Late is 15.5" as is all 66 steering box shafts. If you try to use the early 65 tele column with a late 65/66 steering box you will have issues. There is not enough adjustment front to rear of the column for that extra inch and the steering will bind if you try to cram it in there without modifying something.

Pre April 65:
Tele column with splined output and a specific box with a long shaft using a solid coupler with 2 bolts to attach to output splines of column.
Standard column with one piece steering shaft from steering box to where steering wheel attaches.

April 65 and all 1966 model year:
Tele column with non splined output. Has a hole with a pin pressed through for pivot blocks that fit inside the flex joint coupler. This has a moderately long shaft steering with splines that fit on the bottom end of the flex joint coupler.
Standard column is basically identical to the description for the April 65 and all 1966 model year tele column.

Someone had posted shaft lengths on the steering boxes. But the early 65 tele column has a specific box that will not work with any other set up with out cutting/modifying, etc.

For those keeping track, my 04D dated Willow Run 65 Corsa has the first configuration.

Okay guys. This is not a forecast. I have put a 65 tele Column onto a 66 box. The lower flange on the 65 column is adjustable. #1 - If you want to put a 66 box into a 65 car with the early 65 tele-column, the whole column does end-up one inch out. You use the same coupler that the 65 tele used. Adjust the flange at the firewall - it clamps around the column. At the top, under the dash, the flanges tack-welded to the column end up an inch further out. It is a simple opening up of the bottom side of the flanges and a pair of bolts/washers and you are good to go. If you want a cleaner install, remove the flanges, grind off the spot welds and use the 66 clamp over the top. I did this to install a Factory quick box in my 65 Corsa with the tele wheel. Very easy. #2 If you want to install a 65 Tele wheel/column into a 66, (no matter which box) also easy. The 3-bolt flange on the 66 is tack-welded onto the column. grind through the tack welds - very easy - and remove the flange. Remove the clamp-on flange from the 65 Tele column and slide on the removed 66. Position the column correctly at the top, use the 65 coupler at the steering box and the 66 clamp at the top. Once correctly positioned, I would tack-weld the lower flange back on. #3 The only harder to do connection is to use an early tele-wheel steering box, with a 66 style column. (Not suree why anyone would do this) That would move the whole column one inch further away from you. It isn't too hard to do, but you need to move the lower tack-welded flange up an inch on the column. This is not rocket science. No new shaft is required, Lee, honest.
