Does anyone know where I can find a tan steering column or somewhere I can send mine and have it rebuilt??? Any help would be great. Thanks.

With out knowing what kind of damage that your steering column has sustained that would prompt you to replace it // Generally as a rule steering columns basically out last the car there are however; some electrical and mechanical components which may need to be replaced on a rare remote basis- Ignition Switch Assembly, Turn Signal Hazard Assembly, Key Lock Assembly, Steering Wheel etc. / do to Damage, Defective or Worn out conditions.

If you want to replace your steering column for whatever reason- added options Tilt Wheel, SRS Air Bag etc., some minor physical damage or pure nostalgia; in my opinion the best and cheapest route to take; is to pay a little visit to your friendly neighborhood auto chop shop for your needs // if you take the column to a local auto shop plan to spend big $$$$$ on the recondition,
/ providing all the parts are still available.

 And as far as the color of your column is concerned, you can prime and repaint any steering column to any color / Tan; or any other color that is // or you may have it repainted from a local auto paint shop for a price $$.

And if you where to buy a new steering column from the “Pontiac Dealer” if they where still available and you are willing to pay the big bucks; they come flat primed black anyway, and you will have to look up your cars interior color-code and/or codes to get the right color match.

                               Hope This Helps  ;D
