Hello, new to this site

1964 cad deville conv. parking brake pressed all the way down, will not release via the brake release handle. There is no opening in rear drum housing to adjust starwheel brake adjuster.{ car is in driveway over 1 year, has not been started for a few years }. Any suggestions how to release parking brake.Thanks

Reach under the floor pan on the drivers side and grab the parking brake cable. Now pull hard on it. That should release the rear brakes shoes. Most likely the cables are rusted and need to be replaced. Just don't use the parking brake again until you replace the cables.
