A dealer could tell you if the column shift was available. If so, get a column and linkage from the junkyard. Be aware of one thing- you may have to do some tranny disassembly. I converted a c-4 from column to floor, and the floor linkage attached from the rear side of the tranny, whereas the column attached from the front. I had to rotate the shaft that the linkage attached to. It involved pulling the tranny pan, the valve body, and reversing the lever position on the shaft. If it wasn't an available option, you can still do it by using a same length steering column, but it will be a lot of work because wiring connectors won't be the same, and linkage will have to be fabricated. Anything can be done given enough time and money.
