Arrow 203* T-stat..where to buy..

When i was reading about this i seen they used it in the older trucks, could i not just get one from an older truck model and drop it in? curious on this part as i havent effed with the cooling system yet, my t-stat housing is starting to leak a bit and id like to replace it asap.

Can you just buy them from an auto parts store instead of waiting and ordering outta the states?

I see I don't think you'll find one locally. I think the stock ones are 192-195
