the rear brakes have a lockheed adjuster bar witha ratchet and cable lever I used stag ones the shoe spreader is the same but the HB lever is 15mm longer so you get a far better handbrake 

and stag ones are far more available and much cheaper 

have a photo somewhere   will look it out  

these adjusters were used on many other cars of the era  its quite often the HB lever pivot is seized 

always get the shoes to self expand fully before you connect /adjust the cables
