there are atleast a dozen vendors that specialize in early T-bird restoration and aftermarket parts including motor parts....

most years in the T-bird resto business, my guess(?), Larry's Thunderbirds in CA...
biggest company/multiple locations, probably NPD (National Parts Warehouse)...

just goooogle a few simple specific T-bird parts: like 1957 Thunderbird hubcaps or aircleaner or grill and they will all show up...
very possible there is one within driving distance....

a picture is worth a 1,000 words....
I found a pic' of the almost finished linkage I made from scratch....
(took maybe 20 minutes to fabricate with just a hack saw and drill)
whatever you do make or buy, just be darn sure it CAN NOT bind up....and cause a stuck throttle!!!
something like that will work fine to get the truck home...
