  Dan ,
     Are you looking for one with the black rubber cover?  PM if you are as I have them in various states of "experience" and or NOS in the box.

I think the originals were the gold colored bell style senders.  They pop up as NOS on eBay pretty often.  I don't know the resistance.

The 69 Shelby used a bell shape Ford sender (zinc dichromate finish) . The assemblyline senders had the trademark  FOMOCO in block letters inside a rectangle.
