Went to work on 72 Camaro, guy's son wrecked it 17yrs. ago. Need's sub-frame, etc. Anyway the car is an automatic on column, bucket seat's with no console. I have seen a lot of camaro's. The only column shift camaro's i've seen are 1st gen. Could you still get a column shift opt. in 72?

Try the Junk yards first. They can cross reference into other GM products. If not aftermarket would be your best bet....

Good Luck

see if the RPO label still exists... i don't know where they were in camaros.. inside the glove box door.. a door jam..  an inner fender...
there are several different formats for the RPO label.. this is just one..

take some pictures..  post them to something like photobucket.. include your RPO or build label.. be sure to cover the numbers at the end of the vin number

if yours does not list the D55 console.. that explains it..
