What I did on the A-V8... Cut a cable and use Nicopress to make it longer or, in my case, shorter... Kinda cobby, but I like that it works...
There are also real short Nicopress fittings, put them at the end of the cable, and thusly out of sight- but they aren't round like the original cable ends, and if one slips off, one must pull the drum to retrive the loose fitting.

If you are referring to the cable directly off the handle, that's part number 77 2853 and Stacey @ Antique auto supply in Texas has 2 of these. he also has the rear cables, part number 78 2498-A. His phone number is 817-275-2381.
