Subject: [CR]27" X 32 hole rims, I need help!!!

I have been working to restore my 1978 Viscount and am down to needing a set of rims that are 27"X 32 holes. My main LBS has had my hubs for 2 months now and told me today that the rim I seek is beyond hard to find and may not exist. They claim that 2 sets of rims have been shipped to them (Ritchey and Sun) and that both were the wrong size. I have talked to a few other LBSs' today and thye have shied away from the my dilema. I have a good set of Shimano 600 hubs that I want to use on this bike. Does any list member know where I can get my hands on 27" 32 hole rims or am I going to have to find a 36 hole set of hubs for the completion of this project? The rims do not need to be period correct. If I fail with the 32's any list member have a 36 hole set of shimano or suntour hubs FS?

Thanks for help,
