Rover 3.5 Thermostat Housing

Looking for a thermostat housing with the neck that points straight forward. I have lots of housings from various Buicks and Rovers, etc. The V8 Conversion Company (Kent UK ) used to manufacture and sell them......but now they are no longer available.
It's a long shot but does anyone have one for sale?
Thanks!
Martyn

Why not reshape one - that's what I did although not a straight ahead as it would hit my distributor - by cutting and welding?

I really thought that I'd be an action figure by now!

I don't have one, but would an "L" hose work for you? Something like the Continental 60859.
Or get a machine shop to turn one off on a lathe. wouldn't take long at all to do.
Cheers
