". . . 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.

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.
