Looking for 2-axle commonwealth passenger trucks, 1.5" or 1.6" scale

I'm looking for two axle commonwealth passenger trucks, the likes that would have been seen on mid-1950s Budd cars.

If anyone has castings or complete trucks available, I'd like to know. There would probably be at least 6 pairs worth of business.

Thanks,

-Mike

The lower the better. That is the color range of tungsten bulbs and kerosene / candle / carbon flame...
