Ford wrote the book on sticking parking brake cables. You can try flexing the cables where they come out of the rear brake backing plates while a helper holds the release handle. Since they applied, they are not rusted tight, ... Yet, and should release. Once they become rusted tight and won't move, you'll need an air-powered cutoff tool to cut them.
Look where the cables come out of the front end of the casings. If the cable is shiny for about 1/2" or more, that shows they are not fully retracted yet.
