Can anyone fill me in on the 1910/1911 Toledo Roadster steering columns. Were they longer.? Does anyone make an aftermarket one? How much longer?
Thanks
Don

Yes, they are longer and there seems to be some variation in column lengths over time. Texas T parts made one for my '11 after I gave then the length of my existing column.

Works well

The tube is 34 inches and whole assembly is 60 inches.

They are four inches longer and set at a lower angle. The lower steering column was accomplished by the gasoline tank not being under the seat but being behind the seat
I believe there are no model year 1910 Torpedo roadsters built, but there are 1911 model year Torpedo Roadsters built in 1910.
