My Yellow 69 has N44. I have conversed with Jon Mello about this car. It is a 3E Nor 307 4speed Saginaw, drum brake car. I am looking for other non Z or SS car owners with N44 (confirmed) to see just how unusual this option occurrence is. RPO production sheet shows 2161 with this option (non Z, SS). This is a manual steering car also. Other N44 owners chime in please. Also, did all SS cars receive N44? My L48 car has manual steering and it appears to be a Non-N44 setup. I guarantee these cars are untampered originals. Thanks CRG. Smiley

Back in the 2004 time frame, when I rebuilt the front suspension on my '69RS (base V8, Powerglide, 2.73 open 10 bolt), as I studied what came off the car, my conclusion was that along with RPO N40 (power steering) I also had RPO N44; i.e. special steering, quick ratio.  As I understand it, at least for 1969, the two distinguishing features to look for are the long (approx. 5.8" long) pitman arm and the "short" outer arms.  The short outer arms have p/n LH-3954875 RH-3954876 and these were the same part numbers on the outer arms on my car.

Lock to lock on the steering wheel is about 2.2 turns.
