Where to find a 67 shift lever

Hi there,
I've been trying to find a replacement column shift lever for my 67. So far all I've found is a shift lever for every year of Impala up to 66, then they jump to 68 onwards. My current one works fine but is very rusty.

Does anyone know where I can find a new one? I've managed to source an aftermarket turn signal lever which looks good, but it seems that manufacturers see the 67 as the poor cousin when it comes to repro parts.

Have I got myself the wrong year of car?

Although '67 parts are a little hard to find, most feel the same way no matter what year they have, except '63 and '64 owners, lol. Other than an NOS floating around out there somewhere, your best bet is to have one Re-Chromed. I have a couple of them, but they are rusty also. Although you may want to try a very dry state first. Arizona would be a good example.

One thing to remember, the lever is different between tilt and non tilt. It looks the same on the outside but the part that fits into the column is shaped differently.

Thanks guys. I probably will look at re-chroming what I have, but keep looking on E-bay if anything comes up. It's weird that only some parts are reproduced - like the turn signal and tilt lever, but not the shift lever.

Still, it's been fun finding all the odds and ends I need to getting the ole Chev looking good.
