TKO Speedo Cable

I picked up a Tremec TKO for my Cobra kit car project and I need a speedo cable. I'm not sure if the connection on my tranny is for a mechanical or an electric speedometer (I'm not a mechanic yet... but I keep on trying). Here's a couple of pictures of my tranny connector and the back of my speedometer. I'd really appreciate some help with part numbers for a cable that would work with my setup. Thanks...

The speedometer is definitely cable driven.

I can see the transmission end as well ...

I always use a speedometer cable from a 1974 Monte Carlo with factory cruise control. The cable that goes from the speedometer to the cruise control unit ... NOT ... the cable that goes from the cruise control unit to the speedometer .

That cable is usually the right length for my projects ( mostly 1932 Fords and 1940 Fords )
