I THINK I can use a non-power brake rod also but would prefer a power brake rod. I need the rod that connects to the pedal itself.
Thanks for any help,
Karl.

What master cylinder are you planning to use? I've been through this on my '60 Plymouth, updated to 4 wheel disc and dual reservoir master. I stayed with manual brakes though. I had a spare push rod from my '57 Imperial that I modified and used on the Plymouth. You can make one pretty easily too, get a heim joint and some threaded rod.

My car had a non power rod in it. I've not been able to find a proper original power adjustable rod so with help from Mark on here, I've purchased this one. It appears that it will work correctly, but haven't installed yet. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/rsd-rc14

Thanks for the offers but I believe I found one. IF it is not the one I am looking for, I'll get back to all of you.
Thanks again,
Karl.

As an update, I installed the RC14 from Summit and it fit perfect. Made a couple adjustments and all is good now.
