RS used to carry a tiny and cheap 365pf vari that was more or less the same as used in cheap am transistor portables, the kind with plastic dielectric between the plates. As most of the construction was plastic ie cheap I figured someone would be making them today, but it looks like they're long gone, being replaced in the market by varactors and the 13 dollar variables as mentioned.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.
