    Hey, this is going to sound stupid but I cant find a company that sells Ranchero parking brake stuff. The only thing I can find is the front brake cable. But my machine doesn't even have the lever, the relase or anything :eek:!

    I havent gone to the bone yard yet, but I have checked out Falcon Parts, Ranchero USA, Mac's and Marti Auto Works. All these guys offer are the brake handle, the brake pad and a front brake cable that might fit...And thats about it.

    Where do you Ranchero/Stationwagon fans get your parts? How simular are Rancheros to regular Falcons? Where does the Ranchero fit in to the Falcon parts picture :confused:?

    pretty sure they are all the same, rear cable length may be different. brake parts,handbrake front cable and underdash parts will be the same.
    they are also the worst parking brake ever.for some reason they dont hold from rolling backwards very well, be careful when parking facing uphill..dont ask how i know!

    You need a Falcon parts vendor that has used parts as well as new/repro stuff. Try:

    Wall to Wall Falcon Parts & More
    Russ and Peggy Wall, Azusa, CA (626) 969-8157. They should be able to supply the missing hard parts.
