gas pedal/cable assy for 59 Apache

Many years ago, after swapping drive axels and t-case from a 73 K20 into my 59 1-ton, I got tired of always having dificulty with the throttle rod mechanical linkage and I modded the gas pedal/ cable throttle from the 73 to work in my old cab. It's worked OK for a long time but my welding on the arm that pulls the cable is ugly and I've never been fully pleased with the pedal placement and the cable alignment to the AFB on my smallblock. Is there an after-market assembly that works well in these late 50's cab or maybe an assembly from a specific year or model that works well from the junk yard?

i have an lokar eliminator in my 58
and another 55-59 trucker has the lokar competitor on his.
i like the look of the pedal on these units, not too small.
