Brake cable needed for D-2

I need a emergency brake cable for 1938 D-2 pickup. If I can't find one is there anything else that might work.

You man be able to adapt something from another truck. Also, most heavy truck parts stores can order custom-made cables. You can spec the diameter, kind of housing, type and length of ends, etc.

Yankeefan- I just went through my file after seeing the post this AM and was reminded that I bought my cables from George Martin. He knows his stuff and is a great guy. I highly recommend him to all.- Stickman 207
