77 ranchero shift cable... Need new one

I just got my 77 ranchero back on the road.
It figures that after I drive this thing for 2 years, without issue, I swap in a 4.6 and 4r70 trans.... And the shift cable snaps off.

Who sells a shift cable??
I've called my local parts stores without luck. Are there any online places I can be pointed to.
Thanks

If not findable, fabricate what's needed out of what's available. Alternate: Rig up a mechanical shift linkage. Sometimes these things are inevitable with very old rigs. impish

Fabricating something isn't an issue.... It's having to redesign something that I already made perfect, because of lack of replacement parts.
I called the parts store back and asked for a 77 tbird shift cable, which the had a listing for and could order. Are these body style rancheros the same as a tbird of same year, or are they different enough to not be the same.

Are there any other cars with a similar shift cable?
LTD, or thunderbird.
The ranchero is based off some other platform, I'd hope that something would interchange.

D7OZ-7E395-A .. Shift Cable / Obsolete

1973/76 Torino/Ranchero C4 & FMX / 1977/79 LTD II/Ranchero C4 & FMX

1975/76 Torino/Ranchero C6 / 1977/79 LTD II/Ranchero C6 / 1977/79 Thunderbird/Cougar C4 - FMX - C6.

LTD II is not an LTD, it's the idiotic name that Ford replaced Torino with in 1977.

In post 3, you said you could get one for a 77 T-Bird from an auto parts store.

See post 5 for the D7OZ-7E395-A applications.

Sorry about that. I did say that I could get a tbird one, but when I actually called to order it they said no. With the ford part number, the same people could actually get one if I prepay. So far o'reilly says they can for $100, but advance says no and Carquest says $175. I gotta call napa and autozone now just in case they are cheaper. I have never bought from o'reilly so I'm checking other options before I do it.
