The pulley is made from two stampings that are paired up and spot welded together. There is a small inner flange (less than 1/8") in each half which form sort of a hub. The center portion is obviously missing from yours as it has worn away. There are two such pulleys on the outside of your firewall. You can order both the pulleys and the bolts. I would replace both. From the amount of wear evidenced by your photo I would suspect that the cable is fatiqued and worn also. The replacement cable is also available from most classic car parts vendors.

It would not be a hard job to turn a couple of pulleys on a lathe. If I were facing high international frieght costs I would not hesitate to make them. Any imperial shoulder bolt of the correct size will work. I believe I would stick with steel or ductile cast iron. If you did pull hard on it a plastic pulley might not hold up.
