I just texted Jerry a few days ago. I asked if he had a secret stash. He said nope, all gone. Danny

There were many cars that did not get the second hidden VIN. The car I am working on now does not have one. I looked around the area and it's not there.. Danny

Cable arrived today, one day early. Exactly 62-1/8th". Looks very nice. Even arrived with some grease. Total for cable S/H/I = $30.50... Looking forward to getting it installed. D

Was at my friend's house and he pulled out a bunch of papers in a file. In it was this booklet with POP. So I took some pictures.

David, What IS that center to center measurement? They are laying on the garage floor under a car. I can get to them if I move the car next to it. D

Here you go Danny. Try these guys.

Yes, that is the same company I just ordered from... Cost was $56 complete. But I already have a set-up in the car and it is original. So just ordered the cable. Cost $24 plus whatever the shipping is going to be. Excited to get it installed. Car is in the air as I had a leaking freeze plug. VERY LUCKY it was the one above the starter. I beat it out working on it rocking back and forth until I pried it out. So ready for the cable. D

Well, I ended up buying the springs in a package deal. The springs have been sitting off a car for a estimated 24 years. So, I am taking my chances with NOT re-arching them. I also got in the package 2.5 sets of original door handle bases and pads in Black & Medium blue. Total cost was $700 cash. So if I do the math, I feel I paid $400 for the springs and $300 for the rest. Pads and bases are all in very good condition with very minimal issues. And I think with some cleaning, will be usable for a survivor that has them missing altogether.  .. Danny

That cable company in Colorado got back to me promptly. Cable has been ordered and will be here in 4 or 5 days. Nice people, I will update when item received. Danny

Chuckman,
 Thanx for that company's info. I contacted them and was very explanatory on what I wanted. Also found another one doing a Google search. I contacted them also. We'll see what happens. Danny

Trying not to get ANOTHER 55 year old unit and take the chance of it breaking in 10 minutes. I will keep the old one and maybe it can be repaired someday. But probably not by me.
I emailed the guy in that ebay ad and asked him to take 60 seconds to measure it. Wanna make sure it was the correct size. Not a hard request to achieve. Never heard back... Danny

WELL... The 61 incher I ordered from NAPA arrived. I was hoping it was 62" since all the others have been an inch longer. It measured 61-1/4". TOO short. These college boys/engineers have no field smarts. They are super smart ON PAPER. I used to deal with this in my trade. I sold my oxy/acet torch set-up a couple years ago. I tried to rob a inner cable out of another car. But it has been sitting since the early to mid 70's and is stuck in the housing. The other cars are operating properly. I never rob parts off a complete car to get another one functioning. So STILL dead in the water or in this case... on land. D
