When I sit in my 68, the steering wheel seems like its rite against my chest, and I'm not that big in that dimension. I dont have tilt/tel.
My steering wheel overhangs my seat by about 6 inches"thats w/ the seat all the way back.
My 67 coupe gives me alot more room than my 68.
Anyone else battling this same problem..
Oh ya, I'd like the dimension of the steering wheel to the dash..
Can it be shortened? 68 columns are hard to come by,or would a 67 fit ???

Yup mine feels like that, I'd like to change it to a tilt/tele from a newer C3 in the future. I can give you the measurement tomorrow.

laying the tape measure on top of the column its 11.25 inches to the base of the steering wheel from the dash.

I too have a 68/400 without the tilt wheel. My legs have just a little room under it, and it is closer to my chest than I perfer, but I wouldn't have any other car.
