Flaming River does. http://www.flamingriver.com/index.cf...prod/prd90.htm
I just got one a few months ago. I picked up the polished stainless steel one from Summit Racing. They only have them for floor shift I believe. It's a very nice piece.

I have only saw one tilt wheel column for a key in thedash car. It was a 67 Firebid and the seller got 600 dollars for it almost 20 years ago. They are a rare part from what I have saw.

I modified a chevelle column to fit mine. (welded on the Nova bracket). Although, those columns are not cheap either.

I did have a 68 Riviera tilt column ready to go in ($75) but the turn signal/cornering light switch was all foo-barred.

Here's a couple pics of the steering column from Flaming River. Also a pic of the Flaming River Waterfall steering wheel I got. I got the column from Summit for $460. If you want me to take some more pics of the column, let me know. My batteries died when I was taking those two and that was all I got at the time.
