Took a look around because this interested me. Seems GM columns are generally longer than 30", a lot seem to be in the 32"-34" area. Read that a '68 Camaro was 31.5" from the end of the top shaft to the bottom end where the rag joint is, an '85 Camaro is 33" same measuring points, except the '85 has a through pin, not a rag mount.

A page w/some more lengths/splines, etc.: Tilt steering columns

A buck sixty'll get you a new one: Chrome 30" Tilt Steering Column Floor Shift
