59 Chev pu 5 hole drums?

Hi, got a question for the task force experts. Does anyone know of a 5 lug brake hub/drum unit that will fit on the front of a 59 chev pu? I've searched the forum and can't find anything pertaining to this.
Anyway, I used to have a 56 with this set up on it so I know it is possible. (I bought it that way.)
I wanted to find some slot mags with the 6 hole pattern,but i can't find them in the sizes I want without paying a fortune for some obsolete ones. As this is the case, I want to go with a 5 spoke wheel with a 5 bolt pattern. I'm on a budget right now, so I would like to use drums until I can afford the IFS and/or disc brake set up.
Can anyone help? Any suggestions?

Thanks, K.B.

Find a set of stock 53 and 54 Chevrolet passenger car front drums and hubs....( they are 5 lug )

They will interchange with your 6 lug stuff.........

I would turn the 5 lug drums and repack the wheel bearings.
When I did this MANY years ago on my 55 Cameo........I bought new bearings and races......because I had no intentions of going to disc brakes.

Thanks Duece. Good info. I'll try to find one of the early fifties cars. Thanks also Gator, I'll look up that site when I get to that point.
