V4 / V4b Speaker Cabinet Wanted!!!

Looking for a V4 4x12 cabinet to match the head I own!
Just purchased my first Ampeg!  It's a 1973 V4 head!  I love it!  Unfortunately the previous owner (or the music shop) picked it clean!...  It's missing all the knobs and all four 7027a tubes that were swapped out for cheap 6l6's...  Almost all the tubes have been replaced with cheap, modern replacements for that matter!
After all that it still sounds great and the cosmetics are pretty great..8 out of 10!  I'm really wanting to make this amp great again and I'm looking for help...
I really want the matching 4x12 cabinet to make this head a set!  Is there anyone out there willing to sell their extra cabinet to make this set happen?
I'm also in search of 6 original silver knobs..  probably pretty rare...

Thanks for your help!
Lookin' to join the club!

By 1973 there's no knowing if the silver knobs would have been there in the first place.   The black plastic knobs was what my 1973 VT22 had.

Thanks for the reply..
I said 1973 only as a guess!
No serial number tag attached so I had to use photos as a guide.  Mostly using photos from this site!  Thanks!  (I wish the model and year was attached to every photo that is posted here). I'm thinking the pots will tell me more once I get into the amp.  I'm going to perform this mod:

Do you think this is a bad idea?

Thanks for your time!
