If you've checked around with the usual parts vendors and come up empty, then I'd imagine you'll probably have to wait and see if one comes available on ebay.  Those things are pretty rare, and accordingly pricey when they do turn up.

I'm still not convinced that an aftermarket one wouldn't be a good choice. While not OEM there's about 12 people in the world that could see the difference and it would have all new parts not ones over 50 YO. It should be pretty easy to connect as the Avanti's have a rag joint and the wiring terminates in a Chevy connector that could be adapted to about any harness.

They are available in billet or plain metal and some don't have the key in the column also.

As an owner of a shop that builds street rods and also an Avanti owner I am sure you can use a Flaming River tilt column. They are paintable and can be ordered in either a 2 inch or 1 3/4 inch diameter tube. They also make in diff lengths. The only issue is the spline is GM for steering wheel.

Summit Racing or Jegs should get you a Flaming River steering column...they also carry Ididit steering columns as well.  Compare the two and see which might be best for you.

Keep in mind if you want to retain the original steering wheel then the spline count is the same as Ford. GM has a different spline count to the Stude.

Once you have found what you want, you can shop model and price to see if there is a better option. There are also a number of others that build/offer columns, Google is your friend here.
