Anything but a mechanical may be illegal in your state. Even Total Performance offered a hydraulic version - which they finally made into a mechanical after it was proven to be illegal in most states.

The electric parking brake was actually hydraulic, actuated by holding the regular brake down fairly hard, the flipping a switch for an inline electric solenoid. The last one I personally saw was in the late '50s- early '60s
