Need help finding a G20 dipstick #758933

I recently purchased an 1984 G20, with a 305, I went to check the oil again after I drove it home and the dip stick snapped off about 4 inches from the top. I have been searching auto part stores, and online stores like summit, but to no avail. The overall length is about 45In, and I can't even seem find a generic one that is close. Almost all of the scrap yards are closed near me, otherwise that would be my best bet. If any of y'all could send me a link for one, I'd really appreciate it.

You could just use a standard SBC dipstick until you find one made for the van. It'll be shorter and you'll have to yank the doghouse, but it'll do in a pinch.

Are there any junkyards near you? I would say find a G-van in the yards and rob a dipstick from one of them.

I can look at the junkyard tomorrow. I'm sure one can be bought for a few dollars but shipping (where's Vienna) in a long tube might cost $30. Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks for y'all's input! For now, I just ordered a dorman for a new chevy express. I plan to just cut it to length, as it is not a braided cabe.
