I am a true believer of fixing things, not throwing them out. On occasion, the spring on Ford E-Brake paw will snap or rust out. 60 years is not a bad life span for these items. The parts can be purchased from www.mcmastercarr.com or nos ford parts houses.
(as of 2009). I was able to find the original springs at one of these houses.
