I've been searching for the parking brakes cables for my 1964 Econoline van. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how/where to locate these parts.

I understand the 1965+ years are different length cables than the 1964. I'm not sure if I can reuse a 1961-1963 part.

I gave my seized cables a bath in releasing fluid to get them back into service... didn't order new ones. If you have problems coming up with a trustworthy vendor, I'll see if I can remember some that do those. Mac's AAuto Parts has an online catalog that I seem to think comes pretty highly recommended. Dennis Carpenter is another shop who has a web page... check those. Good luck

I don't have any existing parking brake on my '64....unfortunately.

I've checked both Mac's and Dennis Carpenter catalogs but they don't carry anything.

If you have any other suggestions, it would be appreciated. Thanks.
