Fuseblock new available original style 68 Lemans?

I haven't been able find anywhere a reproduction fuse block. We all know the trouble the old ones can give but you would think someone would be making them?
Please guide me

I think 65 has a slender tall fuse block

our 68's

are fairly square

I was thinking more of just the fuse box itself to replace for those who aren't ready to tear the car apart to replace the whole harness.
Is there a modern version fuse box that will fit right into a 68 Lemans?

Thanks for the link! I'd like to find one that isn't rusty, but I'll bet there aren't any.

I'd be 99% confident that will clean up and be nice.

Ideas:
Soaking it overnight in 50/50 water and white vinegar then toothbrushing.
Other is CokaCola / toothbrush.
OR Dremel with wire wheel.

thin coat with dielectric grease.

There’s a hell of a lot of wires that go into those fuse boxes, would be a lot quicker to get a dash harness

I rebuilt my fusebox for about $30 in parts and about 8-10 hours of time. Take lots of pictures upon disassembly.
Tricky part is unlocking the terminals from the box but once you figure it out it goes easily.
