Just picked up a 63 nova II and the clutch cable broke. I have searched this forum and the internet with no luck finding one. Thanks

You need to look A little closer,Novas use a mechanical linkage not a cable. The most common failure is what's called the Z bar,there reproduced or you could probably find a good used one here

This one has a cable from a Vega according to the paper work i got with the car but there isnt any part number. I want to just try and find another cable to get through the summer then this winter make it mechanical.

When you change it back be sure and reinforce the arms on the z-bar. You don't want to break down in Missouri, like I did, on the Power Tour.

FWIW, the Vega bellhousing is different than the Nova bellhousing, which is an animal all to itself.
There is a 6 cyl (small hole) and a v-8 (large hole) bellhousing made for Nova's that has the clutch arm at 7 o'clock.
I'd bet that something was modified at the pedal end of the works for the cable attachment, also.

Hope that helps.:)
