Where to buy coolant sensor connector?

The connector that slides onto the coolant sensor in my 74 Chevy big block has become brittle and cracked. Does anyone know where I can get a new one? I attached a pic of the sensor for reference.

If the connectors are not readily available, my alternative would be to replace the sensor with a unit that has a more standardized connector (blade style). Does anyone know of a replacement sensor that would work with the stock gauge?

The standard Packard 56-series female terminals used for the bladed terminals also slide onto that sender (from the side). The only difference is that the plastic housing had a slot in it to clear the stem of the terminal. You can buy them here (and probably at NAPA as well):
