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

What is the longest and largest rise stem available that would be a nice option for this setup?
I believe some manufactures produce a 110 and 10 respectively.
TIA for any advice

I found some adjustable stems like the Zipp Service Course SL is forged from 7075 aluminium and it's available in eight lengths (70mm to 140mm) and two rises (+/-6° and +/-17°). There are also many adjustable stems that commonly offer 0-60 degrees of setting and longer lenghts like 110mm.
