Box-type turn signal flasher: Source?

Anyone know where to get an original-style turn signal flasher that is box-shaped, not the round kind?

The originals WERE round. This goes back as far as my 57 Chevy.

I've seen both kinds but the round were far more common. Don't know of a source.

This is what mine looks like, and it turns out that it is not working properly. I think I can rebuild it, if all it needs is that tiny wire reconnected where I put the arrow in the bottom image. (it's not a great picture, the end of the heating element is bare and runs up and inside the coiled insulated heating wire, and then attaches to the "deck". This wire looks to have melted). The contact is dirty too.

Why?.... dazed and confused. Replacement parts are only $3.00.

When you're unemployed, your time is cheap. THREE DOLLARS! That's half an enormous breakfast.

Seriously, I have a round blinker in there now, but I think the clip for this car looked like it was for a rectangular blinker. But your point is a good one... what the heck am I wasting my time for... this ain't no original showcar. The round one looks better now.
