I've noticed on several Camaro's that at the base of the column there is a shift lever but the car would be console shift. I'm assuming that this is so the key couldn't be turned all the way back to lock the steering wheel while in gear and to prevent putting into gear without the key. Question is did they also put these columns in cars originally equipped with a 4 speed? I figured it to be possible so they didn't have to produce yet another style column.

You are correct the 69 4 speeds had a backdrive linkage. This linkage would prevent the car from being shifted out of reverse without the key in the ignition. It also operated the reverse light switch at the base of the column.

Re: 69 Camaro steering column

Edward, thanks for joining! I think you broke the record of replying to a older post: 9 years!

A steering column is a bolt in task, but there are some tricks. Your best bet is to ask a question on the specific problem you are having in the top forums (like general, or suspension), not these older archives.

Luck!

Kevin
