So long as it is still on the dash I don't think so (but I do not know). I believe in 1968 GM put the ignition in the steering column in response to federally mandated anti-auto theft laws (but again that may have been 1969, just can't remember off the top of my head).

It would be 1969 as 1968 still has it on the dash. At one point they starting using the round key for the doors. Maybe that was '69 as well.

yes, '69 was key in column. square key opens ignition and doors. oval key for trunk and glove box.
i think it was '74? the change was square key ignition only, oval key did all other cylinders.
