You might look here.
Note the "tube audio" folks gravitate to that stuff and tend to cause 
seriously sick prices, because tubes.

For authentic look:
The easy way is remove the old carefully, gut it and install inside 
several smaller modern electrolytics
of the proper ratings.  Reinstall using the bottom bakelite terminal cap 
and go your merry way.

Make it work again:
Pull the old out and replace with multiple smaller modern parts and move on.
