65 Impala BB throttle cable conversion

Has anyone converted the mechanical stock linkage to a throttle cable on a 1965 Impala w/ a BB. Does any company offer a kit? Is there another GM throttle linkage product that that would fit?

One off of a TBI 454 in a pick-up truck is the right length and will fit the impala firewall. Pedal is kind of plane by comparison but I think you could figure out a way to make it look closer.

I have a Demon carb and a 700R4 trans TV cable that that needs to get connected to it. The stock mechanical linkage will have to be modified. After several attempts of linkage fabrication I was not thrilled with the alignment of the rod during full throttle travel. Also the plastic bushings in the stock pedal along with that rubber bushing connecting to the rod have more movement than desired. In a perfect world the throttle cable conversion seems like the best answer to make this work.
