Steering Column Question

I bought a used steering column off EBay some time ago for my 56 Chevy PU. Well the time has come to use it so I pulled the steering wheel and found that the P.O. had cross threaded / stripped the nut and main column that the wheel is on. No one seems to know what size the nut is , nor what size and thread pitch die I need to try and save the threads. I am sure it is metric. It is a 1984 Camaro column.
Any help is appreciated.

If you are going to have to buy the die, you might save by taking it to a machine shop they might be able to fix the threads, then you can buy a nut.
