Looking for Brake Drum

Does anyone have a front brake drum in good condition for a 1938 Hudson for sale. 11 Inch Drum size.
We have a member in NewZealand who needs one.

    As far as I know it will so long as its off an eight I believe they are all the same from 1936 until 1947. Please bear in mind it would need to be sent to NewZealand

    I just checked my drum and it is 10 In Dia.
    I know it off a '39 but I do not know what Model.
    The Master Chassis Group Parts Book Shows 3 different drums for 1939 but does not give size.
    C151764 Fits 91,92,93 Series.
    C151765 Fits 95,97 Series. Looks like the 11 In Dia drums are on Hudson 8Cyl.
    C156764 Fits 90 Series.

    91-93 are "big six", 95-97 are 8 cyl, and  90 are 112's with small six.   All drums from '36 thru '47 are interchangeable within their model ranges., but not between models, if that makes sense!   i.e. 8s, 6s, and  small engine models.   Always struck me as illogical why they made the 112 model with different brakes  and axles.
