    Good Afternoon Guys,

    I am going to need to be replacing the throttle cable on my 79 Ghia. I have been looking for quite some time and have not been able to find one that is specifically for my application. If anyone knows what the correct length is and where I might find one I would greatly appreciate it. Just a heads up this is for a carbureted engine.

    Thanks,
    Andrew
