Cadillac 390 starter

Hey guys. I'm building a 39 Ford. I picked up a 40 Ford rolling chassis that already has a 390 Caddy motor in it. I like the nostalgia setup. The engine is clean as a whistle and I'm gonna stick with it. My question is, does anyone know if a newer gear reduction starter will work? I was recently at a car show that a guy had the same engine in a Model A. Unfortunately I was unable to find the owner. He had a newer model starter on it. Does anyone have any ideas. I work at a local parts store and am able to try different ones but that could take forever. Thanks in advance.

Narrow it down!
What year is the engine?
Easy to find one then!

Oops. That would probably be better. It's a 1962 model Caddy 390. Thanks.
