Steering column ID

I have a 69 camaro with a steering column that is not one found on that particular year car. The turn signals and hi/lo beam are in the same lever with a cruise control switch and it also has a tilt lever. All I can see for id numbers stamped in the column are A-8 or 3 on the bottom of the column near the firewall. Can anyone give me a hand in iding this column or send me where I can check column id numbers? It was suggested to me that it might be an 80's - 90's column. Thanks.

WELCOME to Hotrodders.com

GM did not start installing the HI/LO beam switch on the column until the late 70's or early 80's ... so the column would be in that era. 69 Camaro tilt columns are difficult to find ( and expensive when you do ) so the previous owner most likely went to a newer column to gain the tilt feature.

Without a photo ... Identifying the column is very difficult ... but I would guess it is a late 70's to early 80's Camaro or Firebird column.

Again ... WELCOME
