    I recently bought a Cope Racing Transmission 727 for small block to put in my 67 Barracuda. Now I need a speedo cable for it. I BOUGHT one from Mancini Racing but it's for a 68 and will not work. I TOLD them what I wanted and they still sent one for a 68. My old cable screws on at gauge and the new one pushes on. I just found out last night so I haven't had time to contact either cope or mancini cause of it being sunday, I just thought I get some input.......If my caps are of its because I'm on an I m pad and I'll be dammed if I go back and correct everything on this SOB. LOL

    I got mine from Napa for my 67 and it is the correct length and end fittings. $20.00 plus tax.

    Be careful and check the length,
    When I needed one, the Advanced ones are about 80" long, NAPA has the correct 63" cable.
