Where can I get a chrome shift plate and lever that will fit my 72 280 sel 4.5L auto?

I have been looking for a chrome shift gate and lever with a white/Ivory ball for my 72 280 sel 4.5L. The one on my car is the black plastic one and I want to swap it out for the chrome one with the white/Ivory ball. They make the chrome ones for many models that will fit.

Can someone PLEASE tell me where I can get one?
Can you still get stuff like that from the dealer?

I also could use a chrome rear view mirror to swap out for my black plastic one....

Thanks in advance...........D

They are really common 2nd hand on any floor shift W108-109 . The white knob though, is a dealer only item ( Classic center in Irvine has them ) .You can remove the black knob and push the white on easily enough.
