Yes, but it won't be cheap - try Don Baker, donbaker@indianvalley.com

 If you are referring to the vacuum advanced, there are Corvette reproduction and some have the same usage number. I bought one from LI Corvettes for my '67 L35 and it looks and fits exact. The only exception is the number 1 in the code is slightly different (top tail in 1 . vs. straight l ) . I'm not into judging and the number is not easily visible so I went with spending the $45 for it.

I have the replacement for the 355 and 360 cans but hate to toss original parts. I will hold onto them incase someday repairing them becomes feasible.

Found some replacments here http://www.heartbeatcitycamaro.com/store/product/21408/Camaro-Vacuum-advance-%231115360-1966-1967/
Will test on my Sun Dist. tester to see how they compare to originals.
