5X4-3/4 Chevy Hub to 39 Chevy Spindle

Before I start a long research project, can anybody advise me if and what they are,of any later-model year chevy (or anything else) hubs with
5 lug-4 3/4" pattern that will bolt straight on to stock 39 chevy spindles. I would like to keep drum brakes all around on my 39 2-door sedan. Drums are accessible to me for free, verses $500-600 for disc brake conversion rotor kits. Thanks in advance. P

P.S. This is a original, straight axle car,

I ... KNOW ... that the 53 -54 Chevrolet car 5 lug hubs and drums will bolt onto a 55 to 59 Chevrolet pickup ( originally were 6 lug ).
I have been told that they will work on a straight axle late 30's Chevrolet car also.

No guarantees ...

I used the 53-54 Chev drums on my 51 Chev pickup (that would work on all 48-54 AD pickups). Had to swap one of the bearings from the car drums for the pickup bearings. Can't remember which one - inner or outer though. Don't know about the ifs cars.

I did this swap on my "39" Chevy with the 53-54 hubs many moons ago. Also don't remember which bearing I swapped.Simple job. Finding the 53-54 donor may be a problem.

Modern hubs for 39 chevy spindles

I appreciate all you guys help and advice. Looks like 53-54 hubs are the ticket so thats the way I'll pursue it. I'm fortunte enough to have a young nephew who works at a salvage yard and he is already on the prowl thru their network to find a set. Again, I really appreciate your solving the problem for me. I'm terrible at doing research on the internet so you've made my job 100% easier. Les White-Granbury Texas.
