Yes they did have tilt steering in 1965 cause I have a Canadian 1965 pontiac custom sport & got tilt steering out of a 1965 grand pix & it is a easy swap & works just fine, I hope that helps you out take care from Paul in B.C. Vancouver.

Canadian Pontiacs did have the tilt option, have had 2 myself.  Anyway, I know a GP tilt will fit and I assume that a Bonny or Catalina will too.  Also, a 65-66 Impala is the same as well.

5 years after the question, I just stumbled across this. To answer your question, the Canadian Pontiacs were assembled on the exact same production line as the Chevy Impala, and thus are twins under the skin, few parts are share with their distant American cousin. In fact Chevy DID offer a tilt-tele column, I know, I had two, and have sold the column shift one, but still have the floor shift unit. Tilt was pretty uncommon back in '65, so IMO you should consider a new aftermarket, Like and Idiit, and just paint the billet interior color. Hope this helps!

Expertise

I can help on most American passenger cars built between 1930 and 1970, and Imperials through 1983. I have over 50 years experience in restoring and maintaining antique and classic cars, including 20 years operating a classic car repair shop. I am now retired, but I am willing to help with any questions of a technical or mechanical nature. I have more experience with Packard, Studebaker, Hudson, Imperial and other luxury makes, but I do have reference material and experience with most makes.


I do not know anything about modifying cars - if that is what you want to know about, pick someone else. I keep them the way the factory built them, and I advise you to do the same, to maintain the value of the car and also for your safety.


I can only handle mechanical or technical questions - I am not a body/paint expert!
