C0DZ-2760-B = 1960/65 Falcon (and etc, see below) / 1966/70 Falcon uses a foot operated parking brake, handle (C5AZ-2760-A) is totally different.

C3UZ-2760-A (replaced C1UZ-2760-A & C2UZ-2760-A) .. Parking Brake Handle / Obsolete

Applications: 1961/64 Econoline / No Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.

Will the Falcon handle fit? I dunno, have no experience with such. I do know the Falcon handle will fit 1961/66 F100/350's in place of C1TZ-2760-A (not repro'd), but...

It will only fit one way: UPSIDE DOWN!

C0DZ-2760-B .. Parking Brake Handle / Reproduced / Applications: 1960/65 Falcon/Comet / 1962/65 Fairlane / 1965/66 Mustang.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: There is another solution, replace the entire park brake control / There are 10 available NOS

C3UZ-2780-A (replaced C2UZ-2780-A) .. Park Brake Control ~ 1961/64 Econoline / Obsolete

C2UZ-2780-A =

GREEN SALES CO. in Cincinnati OH has 2 = 800-543-4959.
--------------------------------------------------------
C3UZ-2780-A =

CARPENTER NOS OBSOLETE PARTS in Concord NC has 3 = 800-476-9653.

GREEN SALES CO. has 5.

parking brake handle

Click the image to open in full size.


IT WORKED.......
bought a parking brake handle from Dennis Carpenter ( Scott Drake part) for a 64-66 Falcon....part number CODZ-2760-B

to remove the old handle it had a press in dowel so I used my handy little zip wheel to cut off the old handle( had to cut thru handles metal innner case) cause could not pull out dowel...
put new handle on and used the screw in plug...
yes handle is opposite of stock but works fine and is not in the way.......
I could have drilled a new hole to make in line up right for stock position but it works fine...

here is a picture.....part cost 10 bucks
