Re: WANTED GEAR INDICATOR FOR 82CJ AUTO TILT COLUMN
You could check GM restoration parts suppliers. A lot of those mid to late '70s cars are popular restoration projects. You might run into a snag though as the console shifts are a lot more popular for restoration so there may not enough demand for the column indicator to stock it.
There are some salvage yards that specialize in the old stuff, but government involvement has made these cars scarce. In trying to get rid of the polluting gas guzzler vehicles they have allowed companies to have them crushed and turn them in as a clean air credit against their factory smokestack emissions. Never mind that the vehicle hasn't been driven in the past 5 years, it's still good for a credit.
If you're not a purest, as a last resort, you could go to a floor shift conversion.
