The company who makes them is called Vertex. They were the hot ticket 50 years ago for all sorts of engines. They are still readily available. Just do an internet search for "Vertex magneto Volkswagon"

The list price is about $1500 but I did find a complany selling for about $800.
Best wishes,
Wally
