URGENT!! Parking Break Pedal Assembly. 66 Impala

I have a 66 Impala SS.
My parking break is magically poping / releasing on its own. The gears in the ratchet assembly are getting worn. There are 2 bolts to the firewall and one under the dash. Does anyone know where I can order a new one, or find a used one in good condition.

I'm pretty sure any full size chevy, pontiac, buick or olds use the same park brake assembly from 65 to around 70 so ring around a few junkyards or eBay, or you can try a stronger release spring, sometimes that's fixes it

I checked with classic can industries and theu have a 1964 and a 1965 separate and there is no 1966. I thought that it might be the same one on the 65 as well but I think that there may be differences. I will do a bit on funting before I order a repro of a different year and potentially waste $100. Thanks for the information.
