The fuel pump style is basicly the same from 1958-12/78. The new style ran from 1/79-8/87 but you will need a spacer to adapt the new stlye to an older engine.

I was working on finding all the subtle differences at one point. Starting in around 73?, there are two input bosses on the pump. When the new style oil filter was adapted, 73/74, they moved it from the inboard hole to the other one. Before that, it was a straight fitting, after there were a few different versions. The really early ones had the self priming lever.

Carquest sometimes carries OE pumps. Napa, checker, sor, all carry the sme aftermarket brand. I prefer OE.

In the 2nd pic down you can see the two input bosses. Only one is drilled and tapped. In approx 73/74 there was an angled fitting so this one will come up differently in the parts books.
