The AMC dipsticks have a rubber cup that fits snugly over the end of the tube.  Seems like that rubber skirt is important to maintaining crankcase vacuum amd not sucking dirt into the engine.

If using a stubby shaft in a broken off stick I.dont think that rubber skirt will have anything to seal on. Probably noy a big deal but something to consider.

Also, I have a stick from a 73 CJ5 and a tube that isnt best shape but I have no need for it.  If that is useful to you PM me.  Yours for shipping.

There are some pics here that give you a good view of where the dipstick tube is in relation to the block:
