I've got a broken shifter cable on a 1996 Thunderbird, V-6 engine, automatic transmission with floor shifter. The cable has a Ford part number of F5SZ-7E395-AA. I"ve been looking for this cable for a couple of months. I've tried parts stores, Ford dealer, Ebay, Internet, etc. with no luck. Have any of you had this problem? The part number indicates a 1995 part (F5) but I've been told it is a 1996/1997 cable. Will an earlier cable fit with some modification? It's a shame this car has been sitting since early October just because of a cable. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This cable is about 28" long and has a threaded stud on the shifter end. On the transmission end it has a ball fitting with a rubber boot between it and the cable housing. At the cable housing on the transmission end there is an angled bracked to bolt it to the transmission. The inner cable is not a braided or stranded cable but is a small flat steel cable that is wound very tightly as it is designed to push and pull. It is this inner cable that is broken a few inches from the shifter end.
I am still trying to locate this shifter cable, Ford part number F5SZ-7E395-AA. It fits 1996-97 Thunderbird and Cougar, as well as some Lincoln MK8 models. New or used, I just need to get this car back on the road. If anyone knows of an older model cable that will work with modifications, that's fine as well.
