Can't find a chrome parts for my 73

I have looked online and called many auto parts stores but I have had no success in finding a show quality chrome plated brake booster and master cylinder that will fit my application. I own a 1973 Pontiac GrandAm. There must be something different about it. They have them in stock for 72 and lower years but it always stops at 1973. Why is that?
Does anyone know where to find one?

Thanks

That's because the GM A-body cars had one design for the 1968-72 model years and one for the 1973-1977 model years. The newer generation is nowhere near as popular, hence the lack of parts.

Ok that makes sense

I looked on year one and no luck. Is there any where I could send my originals to have them chromed and re-built? I need someone reliable anf show quality chrome. Anyone ever done this?

Thanks for the info so far.
John
