thermostat for my '74 Tradewind

I have a thermostat which works only the AC. It has gone bad and now needs replacing. Where can I find a replacement? It is a two speed.

I also noticed another thread that mentioned being able to set up the thermostat so that the ac unit will cycle on and off as the temperature is met rather than running all the time.How do you make this arrangement, and is there any harm mechanically to the system by doing this. I like the idea of the cycling especially at night when the temperature cools down and only needs adjusting on occasion.

I recently followed the post below and converted my a/c and furnace to 1 home digital thermostat (the a/c cycles on and off to please thermostat setting)in a couple of hours. The only difficulty I experienced was determining which 110v feed wire to splice the relay into as I have a penguin a/c unit.
