Rebuilding old Flightliner hub? Brakes bad...

I got my girlfriend a 1960-ish Sears Flightliner, which is in mostly great shape, but you have to pedal way back to get the brake to engage; it feels worn out.

My local bike shop didn't want to try rebuilding - they would only sell me a new wheel, which would look totally wrong on this classic bike. Does anyone know of a place I can order a new hub so I can rebuild the wheel?

She's totally in love with this bike, so if it's anything short of totally impossible I want to do this...
