I don't think the column is in too bad of shape actually. It is already out of the car as I have gutted the car completely to start a restoration. It is missing some parts including the hub and ignition module. I figured I might as well have it torn down and rebuilt while it was out since I knew it would need parts anyways.
I am tempted to try it myself, and I have downloaded all of the documents that you have on the Corvette FAQ page and will read them as soon as I can.
I’m sure the hub is readily available but, is there a source for the ignition module?
