Question about 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue
There is an adjustment for the prking brake cable located under the floor. This has a hook for the cable and a threaded rod and nut. This is a cheap part to replace if seized. If it is too tight the brakes will be partly actuated even when the brake pedal is released and will very easily lock up when applied. In fact you may suddenly find yourself facing 180 degrees form where you were heading.

Check axle seals for seepage. Also wheel cyls. If drums are old, they may be too thin and becoming "egg shaped" which will also cause lockup. You need to check all three items to find your problem. To check drum thickness have any brake shop measure inside diameter with an inside micrometer The min diameter is stamped into the brake drum on the outside edge.
