1969 big rear drum brakes

I have a 69 impala 12 bolt rear end with 11x2 inch brakes im rebuilding and I have found most of the brake parts except the parking brake levers and the flat fork looking piece of metal that ties the brake shoes together, I have talked to a lot of people about this including one of the biggest junk yards in the us and no luck any ideas, thanks

Most parts stores have only Three to eight small parts kits left for Raybestos or Moraine (American made parts) so I would be buying those up while they're still a few left in the world (I checked NAPA and RockAuto which list both import parts and American made parts for your shopping pleasure. But the E-brake lever and the brake adjusting stabilizing bar are not available as a service parts. GM used the same basic parts in their light duty pick-ups (denoted by having only five wheel lugs not six or eight) as well as the Chevelle wagon.

If you can not find any brake parts any where else in the world MPB sells an 11 by 2 drum brake for use on Chevelles and Camaro's because those owners don't know it is just an Impala part being rebranded and sold as a "just as good as disc brakes" upgrade for those cars. They (Master Power Brake) think they are gold plated because for the backing plate, wheel cylinder, and a set of shoes, and a small parts kit, along with a brand new drum they charge over $500 bucks for a set of two.
