Where to get wide flat ribbon cables

I have a piece of equipment that uses a 14-pin cable to connect the  
front panel LCD to the mainboard, using a flat ribbon cable of this type:


With friction-fit contacts on the end. The original has degraded over 35  
years and gotten brittle and the "pins" have started to lift. However  
all the 14-pin ribbon cables I can straightforwardly pull up of this  
type have a very narrow pitch and overall width, and are no good for  
this application it's more like something you'd use in a modern laptop.

I don't know the exact pitch for the pins on the OEM cable but the  
14-pin ribbon cable itself is the better part of 2 inches wide. Anyone  
still sell a cable like this?
