Slat Grill Intake Manifold

Looking for a replacement of mine that has developed a crack. Does anyone have one that is early Slat Grill. No ports just ones with a smooth curve from heat box to block.

So here's an update. Sent the intake and exhaust manifold's to Jimmy Strauss in California. He repaired them both. Did a great job. He has also been very helpful and given me tons of advice and pointers.
