Need a doner column reccomendation

Howdy, I am going to build up a stub column for Model A Tudor. Can you guys toss out some good doner tilt columns I can go hunt down? I'm wanting to avoid the modern look with the integrated key and plastic fugly clamshell housing. I'm just not sure where to find a simple tube style column with tilt. Pickups? I dunno.....

Thanks,
Dave

1970's GM van, but by the time you find 1 and clean it up, you'll be out $200 or so, there are $250 aftermarkets available if you shop around

After posting I found some info that said basically the same thing: GM or Chevy van tilt. How about Ford vans? I think I've seen way more Econolines than Chevy vans over the years. I can convert the plug...no biggy there (besides I'm using a Mopar harness :-0). I have a old Mustang II tilt column and was going to just cut off and shape all the modern looking outer stuff but then I realized its missing the turn signal electrics etc....so back to hunting.
