That poor bike. you need a 1" threaded fork if you want to reuse the current headset and stem. There are lots of sources for great forks but if that was mine I would put a Soma straight blade chrome fork.
Hold all the headset parts in place and measure the length from top to bottom and that will tell you what length steerer tube you need. A little longer is always better.
Check ebay you may find a nice Bianchi fork or some other nice chrome fork for cheap.
