Evening,

After reviewing the posts, and getting a phone call from my '68 parts expert/Camaro owner/best friend, I think the proper length is likely 61 in. My original cable is still hooked up in the car, or I would have checked the replacement cable against it. Another episode of post-before-you-check-it; please don't hold it against me - just trying to help.

Anyone need a new 56.1 inch new cable assembly ?

Regards,
Steve

Steve, no problem! Dang, I do that all the time..... :)
Hey, got an idea, put the cable on ebay......:)

Chick - forgot to ask how your awesome restoration is proceeding - got any pictures or updates you are willing to share?

Randy, was on vacation for several weeks and just getting back to the car and now this coming week is Spring Carlisle followed by Hershey so not too many days available the next two weeks but some pics and info will be forthcoming soon as I picked up another batch of clear zinc coated parts which included two orig. speedo cable clips which I just installed along with some brake lines. What a joke some of those are! Engine is painted and starting to finalize addition of engine components. Will be adding info and pics to our build thread soon.
