'59 speedometer cable, NAPA part number?

Does anyone know a napa part number for a '59 4spd speedo cable? I think LMC sells them but I'd rather just order it from the place here if possible.

NAPA's web site only list #BK 6151644, which is 60 inches long for an auto. Probably won't work, but our local store still has paper catalogs and can look things up for you if you get the right guy on the counter.

This one is 65", I believe that is what mine was or maybe 64". At any rate this one would work.

I believe I gave bad info.The 65" one is for a 3-speed tranny,I think.I remember the one for my 4-speed as being about 72".Hope the OP didn't spend his money based on my incorrect info.

You are right again Steve, my tranny is a 3-speed, thus a 65' worked fine.

(sigh) Another clueless ebay seller. This is the WRONG cable! It's for a 1957/60 F100/250 THREE speed manual: B7C-17260-F = 65.20" long. It does not fit a 4 speed, nor anything after 1960.

The correct cable for the OP's application is:

B7C-17260-A .. Speedometer Cable-69.20" long / Obsolete

Warner T-98 4 speed applications: 1957/58 F100/700 / 1959/60 F100/250 2WD & F350/700.

JST AUTOMOTIVE in Lebanon TN has 2 = 615-443-3086.

MILLER OBSOLETE PARTS in Binghamton NY has 2 = 607-722-5371.

CARPENTER NOS OBSOLETE PARTS has 100 = 800-476-9653.
