72 280Sel 4.5 liter

Hey Everybody,

Looking forwarding to helping, if I can.

Untouched 1972 280 sel 4.5 liter with 30k original miles. Original paint, original muffler, original radio, original everything and it works perfectly.

I do all the maintenance/repairs myself. Have changed all the filters, hoses, etc. Am currently changing passenger side window regulator, rebuilding power steering due to leak, and cleaning and recharging AC system.

First of many questions: Where can one find an AC Receiver/Dryer as this one seems to be discontinued? Is there a common replacement unit you folks put on this model? The OEM long, skinny, vertical one seems impossible to find.
