I recently bought a temporary replacement for my original while it is being de-done.  Napa part # FPN B0110P with higher flow rate for 289 K code.  Does not have the button top look, but is similar size and design and fittings, bolted right up, works great and was inexpensive.

 I am not aware of any besides the auto parts stores generic replacement which kind of looks the part. FYI don' procrastinate on getting a button top core restored even if just to put on the shelf for some day down the line like many say because Fred Ballard the only guy doing them isn't going to be able to do them forever. He works with a rebuilder and sometimes the rebuilder is finicky . I would not be surprised if the rebuilder flacks out on Fred leaving him high and dry along with all of us. FYI your Shelby pump doesn't have to be a genuine hipo pump with the tiny 3939 or 4201 flange numbers that are extremely difficult to see if at all once mounted because the non hipo pumps and there are many look the same ,work the same ,pump the same with the exception of not working as good over 6000 rpm (still works mind you just not as good). If you are in competition where that matters you will be using a different pump anyway. The non hipo button top is concours acceptable in about 98% of cases. The exception is  SAAC premier or MCA Thoroughbred where not only flange numbers need to be right but the date stamp need to be appropriate for the build time of the engine.
