Lots of options out there, I know that shops advertise in Hemmings Motor news.
People swear that those things work pretty well if restored
Or search the Googler.

Many, many years ago I did a pair of MG lever shocks. If I remember right it was a simple measure of replacing the seals. I have no idea what the seals in a 39 Pontiac look like or where to get them. If they are not working I'd simply take them apart and see if I could match up the seals.
