". . . The early car nut was 1/4 20. . . ."
That isn't even reasonable. I'm pretty sure that was a typo for 1/2-20.
The same thing was repeated in every version of the parts catalog I have

The Chevy FC part number was 114496, but the parts manual no longer listed
it by 1973. The early car nut was 1/4 20. My Greenbrier's nut was missing
when I got it so I got a grade 5 nut from an industrial fastener outlet.
There's Murphy's Law corollary that says you'll find yours in six months

I'm pretty sure the FC shares the shaft dimensions with '60 - '63 and '67 -
'69 Corvairs (other Chevies from those years too). I found a post that said
'67 Camaros used 1/2 - 20.
Be aware that this is a special nut, it's certainly hardened, and it might
be non-standard in thickness (I've only had ours off once). I'd use Grade 5
or 8 for sure, you might also loctite it on.
