Yet another Cadillac question...1963 390

I need to get a crank pulley for my 63 caddy. However, I dont know what to look for exactly. 1963 was a funny year for cadillac...they used a 390 V8 but it was unique to 63. Most of the rotating assembly was the same as the previous 390's, but all the bolt-ons and the configuration resembles the 429's that came out in '64. I guess my question is...does anyone know if I could use the crank pulley off of an early 390 or a 429...or do I need to get one off of another 63 caddy (which isn't too easy to find).

damn, according to those web sites i need to part out my 1962 caddy sedan deVille.
it has at some point had the engine rebuilt. the car had been sitting for a long time before my forks got a hold of it, so i recently put some fresh heads on it. the transmission was rebuilt about 4 years ago ( i never drive it ), as well as the rear end and the drive shaft. i order for it to be a daily driver (it runs) it needs a carburetor and the exhaust needs a new heat riser. oh yes, it has a new radiator, hoses, belts, alternator, and tune up too.
the car needs paint (real straight body with little rust), carpet, and dash pad. the seats are in excellent condition (had the front ones recovered in vinyl and the back is the original leather). it also needs 2 window motors.
all of the chrome is in excellent condition too.
all for the low price of $3000.
i sound like a GD sales man; and i might be if i keep thinking i can sale something like cornering lights for $250.
interested? i have owned the car for about 3 years, and before that my parents owned it for about 7 years. so its not one of those buy/sell deals. i actually know all about the car, and i live in Dallas TX.
later Aaron
