That would be great, but I've never seen them. All the ones I found turned out 
to be cheap imitations once I got a good look at them. I didn't find any with 
genuine molded-on lead terminals, for example.

I never tried a street rod show, however.

I'm reassured by your claim that they're out there, but they still don't sound 
EASY to find.
