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.
