Thank you Jeff and Paul for your suggestions.

After removing a number of parts from the bottom side of the car, I found a circular hole in the frame that allowed me to see what was holding the conduits inside, and so I was finally able to remove the conduits. Not a quick or particularly easy task, especially when one is doing it for the first (and hopefully only) time. I can now take the entire cable assemblies to a local outfitter to have the swaging done.

In 1932, Pierce touted the box frame as “one of the few really great revolutionary improvements in automobile engineering in recent years.” In terms of functional performance, they were probably right, but in terms of removing the front brake cable assemblies, this feature did cause quite a bit of additional work :-)
