Your correct on the nobody has them or are made. The only source that I know of are the donor cars, and dont forget about the Firebirds.

I needed on for a 67 non-tilt and could not fnd it but Year One does list one for 68&69. I bought a used collumn from a 68 and wouldn't you know it is different. But I took the 68 apart and and found the balls were the same size as the balls in my 67 so I took them out of the 68 and rebuilt my 67 bearing. If bearings are all you need I think you could buy just the balls at a good bearing retailer. Just a thought. Good Luck.

When a chevelle brother needed those bearings for a 67 chevelle, he found them at:
Arizona Classic Chevelle Parts
2601 E Bell Rd
Phoenix Az. 85064
602-482-5513

I'd bet a cold one that the chevelle & camaro columns use the same bearing. It may be worth the call.
