1 ton and 1-1/2 ton GM Step Vans, such as bread trucks and some Motorhomes, of the 70s - mid 80s on GM chassis, are listed at Napa as a P-30 and yes, speedometer cables are available in lengths to match your FC, first measure the length on your FC-150 or FC-170, go with it to a Napa store and request a Speedometer cable of that length for an 1981 GM Step Van P-30. My Napa is a main warehouse store and they stock it, so if your store doesn't have it they can order it.
The reason is these early GM P-30 vehicles use the same thread and size connection on the trans as the FC's have and all early P-30s used a mid sixties speedometer, that has the same thread and size as an FC Speedometer.
