Colnago C50 Campagnolo Record fit options

I recently got a deal on this Colnago C50 with Campagnolo Record setup. Its a 58 which is the lower limit of bike sizes I ride.
The most challenging fit for me are the bars which can not be raised 2" that would make the ride more comfortable for me.
I see my options as getting a new longer fork stem but would hate to replace this original Colnago since its a classic setup with the original forks and special carbon made for Colnago.
The odds of finding someone with a similar setup in 60 or 62 that wants to trade are probably small.
Are they any options to extend the stem? I know there are some that angle up which would require replacing the Deda Newton stem and possibly the King head set??
Really love this bike including the Campy Neutron wheels with Continental Gatorskin tires. This is one of my super bikes given the c50 heritage and being Italian made so Id ofcourse love to ride it on a regular basis.
TIA for advice
