parking brake

I am looking for a transplant parking brake set up for my 52 chevy sedan project and was wondering if anyone has found one that worked well for them.

Does your Chevy not have one....or does it just not function as new ? ?

If yours is missing ....I have used a pull lever sabre type from a 56 Ford F-100 in a lot of my projects. In my cars .the pedal push down type are hard to use.......it is hard to get your foot up high enough to use them in 32 and 40 Fords......

Lokar has come out with a brand new able pull hand operated parking brake for under the dash......it is very much like the 56 F-100 type I use but is a universal fit and ....of course....brand new.



Summit lists them on line......in stock......

Thanks Deuce, I will look into that as well. I wasn't planning on using the original as it goes through the firewall right into the back of the 350 engine.

Eneas Kid,

I used a hand brake from a '39 Chevy for my '35. Guess I got lucky on Ebay and found an excellent one for $25. It mounts under the dash and is a hand pull similar to the piece Deuce shows above. You have to fabricate a mount of course.

Lokar has the cable specific for the '39 hand brake. That cable then attaches to their universal fit cables. Downside is I've had to build in a lever at that point for more mechanical advantage.
