Go to the wreckers....they used those in most Ma' Mopar products up into the 90's.
 
I have a big jar full of them, I always pocket a few when I hit the wreckers....
 
 
OH Goodie.  Send me some!  I used all mine up and now no cars to pluck them from.
 
Matt!  Is that a NAPA part?

Regarding why some 65's and 66's had them in the dash and others didn't?  I got the answer from a Mopar grey beard years ago when I discovered the "non-functioning" signals in the speedo of my 66 T&C.
 
The speedo clusters were all the same, and the signal holes were simply covered in black tape on the assembly line.  My 66 T&C still had the black tape over the holes when I put the bulbs and sockets in.
 
Now, in Ma Mopars wierd way, contemporary Furys and Monacos got the fender mounted units, but they were small and dim enough that they were not able to be seen during the day, and therefore the in dash signal bulbs were left in....  go figure!

Oh, and yes, the temp sender for Cold and Hot light equipped cars is still available, I just bought one last year too. That sender was used in a multitude of cars. 
 
Ground the wires to the block to see if the bulbs work first, then check the bulbs in the dash, and then replace the sender last.  That is the order of operations for trouble shooting that issue.

I think they fixed the problem by 69, the Dodges for 66 were very small little triangles....  however, I could be wrong, but mine don't show up at all during the day!
