Anyone know where replacement 66 Galaxie steering column weather seals can be bought? Or do I need to make one?


Also, is there an aftermarket steering column that will easily accept the factory steering wheel?


Thanks

I'm looking for this part too. Did you ever find it anywhere? I've checked, cg, dennis-carpenter, ebay, and Dearborn.

That weather seal has never been reproduced. You'll probably have to make one unless you can come up with a similar one from another model.

I looked at tons of them for Fairlanes, Galaxies, Ford vans, trucks etc and could not find a close enough match that either I could make work or modify.

If you do find one, even if it's for another make (i.e. Mercury, Pontiac, etc) please share with the community!

Are there any that you purchased and tried but they wouldn't work? I'd like to cross those off my list first.

Thanks!

Didn't see any I felt could work. Ended up taking my original and fabricating around it in order to remake the original and reuse it in the car ...

Just wanted to let everyone know I found a solution for the replacement of these no-longer-produced lower steering column boots. I found some Oatley rubber roof flashing who's hole fit the steering column diameter perfectly. I took the old seal, lined up the column holes, traced the perimeter and the holes and then cut it out with a razor blade. It has worked out great so far!

Nice job, thanks for sharing that. If you can, share a link or part number for Oatley so folks in the future can find it. Good stuff, thank you again.
