finding rare parts question

Question

I am just about done with most of the projects I had  planned for the winter. But still have "ONE" big one to go. I am looking for parting brake cables for my 1956 Safari. Mine are in bad shape.

 Can anyone suggest a place to locate them?  I once heard  of a Crossover parts book that would let you see what other cars used the same parts. where might I find one? It would sure be nice if a Nomad used the same ones. Does anyone know???

 

Thanks Steve

Got ahold of Ray Whites Junk yard. Informed everything they would have would be NO good. but thanks for the lead . I am a member of the safari club but have never figured out how to navigate the site. Can not find ANYWHERE to post a question. Did find some on AMES site listed as all except Wagon  so may just have to fab  some using those to start. I do appreciate all the leads though .

Inline Tube made a custom parking brake cable for my '72 Lemans convertible after I switched from a 350TH to a 400TH tranny and suddenly the stock cable was too short. If you know how long you need, perhaps they can help. Won't hurt to call them.
