Hmmm... You might also consider these factors:
- steering wheel diameter (as mentioned)
- steering wheel dish
- position of seat track vs. floor (it can be mounted in at least 3
positions from front to rear)
- thickness and condition of seat cushion and diaphragm (old and saggy vs.
new and springy, thicker repro vs. thinner original)
- presence or absence of wooden spacers beneath seat tracks
I would be surprised if the column angle changed much from year to year,
except maybe from CB to RB.
