Ignition Switch Issue - Part 2

I posted a thread a week or 2 ago about a starting/electrical problem I was having. After much troubleshooting and helpful responses on this forum, I finally decided it was the ignition switch and removed it. As you can see below, the switch got hot at some point and began to melt the white connector that is plugged into it. I also suspect that the inside of the switch itself is shot. Before I put the new switch back in, I would like to get a new connector.

Any idea on how to come up with a new white connector as shown in the pic? I know just replacing the switch is temporary. I will look into getting it fixed with the "kit" at some point, but for now I want to just replace the switch.

The multiple connectors are for easy assembly line connections , if nothing else don't be afraid to solder on some individual connectors.
But first a run through you local salvage yard for near vintage, GM vehicles with similar harnesses.

PS. Yep , that's fried.

The last time I bought an ignition switch, it came with a pigtail. You would cut off the damaged plug on the harness end and crimp on the pigtail. Might want to go to the appropriate car dealer and see what the replacement switch comes with.
