Here is one FDn 50 f1.4 for a solid price:

This was the first pick, you can find even better offers.

It looks like an FDn should look (all black and so on) but the seller named it as FD?

Would that adapter be good enough? eBay

It is FDn, unless it has a breech-lock ring (silver ring, around the mount), properly it is described as New FD or FD New Mount. But officially, it is simply FD.

Yes, the adapter from the link should work, but its quality is very low, meaning that you can face some problems with focus to infinity and wearing of lock on/off ring. (the one that push the lever to open aperture on FD lenses). Check if the seller has good reputation and will accept  replacement, but shipping it back is quite expensive.

I can recommend more expensive but higher quality It can pay off, if you are planning few more FD lenses.
