    CJ Pony Parts has excellent prices for most things like this. I've used their 65/66 speedo cable in several modern engine/trans swaps and they always have the cheapest parts and excellent service.

I did use a additional Studebaker guide for the cable on the passenger side and made the brackets for the ends of the cables. I then hooked right up to the Studebaker front cable. Sorry, but I cannot find the receipt to get the part number.
      Well....lucky for me, one of my best friends restores 65/66 Mustangs and has a large building full of Mustang parts. If one of the factory Mustang cables will fit (work) I know that he will let me have whatever part I need. I help him a lot with his restorations because we are good friends so he won't have any problem helping me with these parts!!

            Thanks, a picture is worth a thousand words. Just wonder how the Mustang cable connect to the rear frame brackets?? I guess you had to shorten the wire cable part?? As for the narrow and wider rear ends...I only paid $50 for the wide one (67/68/69) but I paid $325 for the narrow one. I'll pull the better pumpkin out of the wide one, have it overhauled and install it in the narrow rear end. After I put the 65/66 pumpkin into the wide rear end I'll sell it for $200 or so.

              Yea, the early Mavericks were top dollar followed by the early Mustang...... I bought my 8" for $150. The cables off of the the 8" rear fit right into the Lark brackets and I used the cable clamps I had in the garage. The stock Lark e-brake cable was one piece, so this way I didn't have to get a cable made or measure to get a cable made .

                If memory holds me correctly; if running a GM Th350 or similar length tranny, a 1964-77 GM A body 4 door/SW (Chevelle and friends) or a 1977-96 GM B body (Caprice and friends) may just be 100% plug n play is you use a conversion rear U joint to the Ford rear end.
