Default 1937 model 78 hood ornament/handle

hey barners,i am looking for a new handle and base as the orig. is very pitted and has about 1" broken off near screw at grille so re chrome doesnt make sense. ive looked all over. started with drake and sounds like they dont even know if it will even be made again. has anyone seen a pic of the finned handle hood release that came on the 37 ford darrin convertable. it had a locking feature. im not sure if it was an optional handle release. the base looks identicle to the37. i will try to shhttps://i.pinimg.com/originals/ea/2c/20/ea2c2078f4d0c9409787990cfcf563a3.jpgow what i saw.
