Columns for sale
          1977:  1977 is a one year only column.  The wiper switch is in the steering column.  
                      The lower column housing is also common to '77 only.
       1978 first design :  1978 first has a metal lock cylinder housing with the
                      dimmer pivot bolted to the housing with the same type bolt that held the '77
                      wiper switch. The dimmer pivot requires the use of a  turn signal lever that is
                      bent toward the driver.
       1978 second design: 1978 second has a metal lock cylinder housing with
                     the dimmer pivot pinned in place.  The bent lever is also used with this pivot.
                     1977-1978 first and second use the same lock cylinder as 1969-1976.
       1978 third design: 1978 third design has a different metal lock cylinder housing.
                    This housing uses a new design ignition lock cylinder that is held in place internally
                     by a special screw.  The lock cylinders do not interchange.
       1979 first design: 1979 first uses a different dimmer pivot that is pinned in
                     place.  This pivot requires the use of a straight turn signal (or cruise) lever.
                     Lock cylinder housing is metal same as '78 third.
        1979 second design: 1979 second has a turn signal switch change that
                     preceeds the '80 model changover. The switch used 13 leads from the switch instead
                     of 10.  Everything else is the same as '79 first.
        1980 :  The 1980 1st column is the same as 1979 second.  Late 1980  lock housing
                     changes to plastic.
        1981-82 :  Ignition lock cylinder housing is plastic unit with the pivot pinned in place.
                     The lower column cover changes to a shorter unit.  1981 is also the first year for the
                     resume function on the cruise control so the cruise lever is common to 81-2 only.
