I don't see anything with that part number in the parts manual. I don't have the assembly book. The prefix should be C4SB and there should be a number before the 35, not a letter. I see a C4SB-16D032. That's the long rod that goes from the center lock mechanism. There's also a similar rod on the driver side which is part number C4SB-16153. There is no rod on the passenger side. Ford didn't usually spend money on parts that aren't needed so I assume it served some purpose.

I'm sure Pat Wilson Thunderbirds or The Bird Nest probably has used ones.

Easy enough to make one Larry. A piece of rod from the local hardware store. Thread one end and a bit of flat plate on the other end with a hole to put a bolt through.
