Anyone able to cross reference to Motorcraft belts from Gates or AC#?

Hey, I'm trying to find the original Motorcraft belt part numbers for my '63 Galaxie Sunliner.

Gates 9385 or ACDelco 17385 is a 15/32" x 38 7/8" Power Steering Non A/C for 352 FE. Need Motorcraft equivalent please.

Gates 7448 or ACDelco 15448 is a 13/32" x 45 3/8" Fan to Generator Non A/C for 352 FE. Need Motorcraft equivalent please and many thanks.

Scrambling for the Galaxie Nationals, truly want the right belts spinning under the hood.

No such thing as Motorcraft until the early 1970's, the belts would have been  Auto-Lite owned back then by FoMoCo.

Bill:

Thank you for your rather cheeky response. In fact, I do indeed want the MOTORCRAFT part numbers for these belts. The odds of finding a serviceable 56 year old AutoLite belt are very slim indeed.

When I have shown other FLM vehicles at shows, the judges like to see Ford sourced or approved parts wherever possible, and this includes MOTORCRAFT brand belts.
