Hi folks! I need clarity with these under-column covers for the right cover for my steering column. I attached a photo with them on an e-body column. I’m informed the longer (green) one is correct for e body. I purchased the short blue one as advertised as e-body. I was told later it is a B body cover. I am seeking to find a correct E body cover if anyone has one to part with. Your insight and help is greatly appreciated as always folks!

I have one now and measures about 9” which is consistent with the green one pictured here.

I had a look at my car but you cannot really tell without pulling stuff apart.
The green one makes the most sense as it would protect/contain the wires all the way through the column mount/bracket.

What my thinking is too. You can see the shorter blue one that is a bit short in both respects, doesn’t even reach the brace points for the brack to dash mount. Is the B Body steering column that much shorter in that area so it fits the same as the ebody only shorter? 🤷🏻‍♂️ just curious. But I did find a cover that is the right length and nearly over looked it as it was titled advertised as a B body column cover. I bought it as it was 9” long and now I’m all smiles 😊
Thanks for chiming in!

Not sure about the B body steering column question.
I noted the "flared" end of the cover at the top goes inside the lower "ring" on the column.

Looks like the green one is the correct for E body. It goes all the way to the bottom of the mounting bracket. Here are a couple pics of a column shifted 73 E body column I have.
