Default Speedometer Cable

I am looking to replace the speedometer cable on 1972 Stingray Convertible with a 4 speed automatic transmission. In looking at parts catelogues they list both an upper and lower speedometer cable. Question: are there two separate speedometer cables? I am away on international travel so I can not simply crawl under the car and looks. Thanks for any help I can get from anyone. Much appreciated!!!!!!

Upper and lower are for cars with cruise control.

I am not sure what kind of trans you have if you truly have a 4 speed automatic—1972 automatics were originally turbo 400s, which were three speed automatics. Those used a two-piece speedometer cable, and that was prior to cruise control being an available option. So yes, there are two speedo cables used on your car from the factory.

Thanks for your reply. Yes I did have a four speed transmission put in to replace the three speed transmission before I moved the car to England for better gas mileage. I have ordered both speedometer cables. Thanks again for your help, greatly appreciated.
