Default Speedometer cable

Does anyone sell the 70 inch inter cable anymore or do you have to replace the outer casing and go with the 66 1/2 cable. Thanks allen

Allen, if you can not find the length you need maybe get a 'custom' cable made. I have had cables made (not for a Model A tho) by Gene at Flat-o products http://www.flat-o.com/accessories/speedcable.htm He may be able to help you out.

I'm sure there are others that make custom cables if you decide to go that route.

If it's for a round speedometer maybe this would work.

Try Smith and Jones, they have a bunch of cables and can even make custom ones. Good prices and good service.
