Hi/Lo dip switch source?

Headlight dip switch lever on my '72 finally gave up.  I'm seeing prices of ~$500.  Given that I'm fond of both of my kidneys, is there a more reasonable source?  Thanks.

The dimmer switches from all roundies interchange; the main difference is that early cars use individual terminals to connect with the car's wiring harnesses, while later cars' wiring harnesses have a single plug.  Also the early cars (166/167xxxx VINs) have jelly-bean shaped knobs on the end, while later roundies (257/8/9xxxx VINs) have conical-shaped ones.

 

Squarelights use an entirely different left-side stalk.
