Why would you want a *new* one? I doubt they're made anymore and if they are
it would be ludicrously expensive, probably well over what the whole car is
Find a junkyard and get a good used head if the one you have is beyond easy
rebuilding. A serviceable or easily rebuildable head should run you less
than $100, particularly if you can find a U-pull yard.
