Gas tank strap bolts for 1954 and other years

Where can I get the long, angled bolts that hold the gas tank straps to the rear frame cross-member for a 1954 Buick Special? A friend used to make them for me, but he isn't around now. I could bend some long carriage bolts but don't have a torch handy, and they will break if not heated. I saw them listed in someone's catalogue a couple of years ago, but checked CARS, Inc. and Bob's Automobilia catalogues, and they don't carry them. Seems like every Buick I've ever restored has needed these due to being broken or rusted or bent so that the threads don't work, etc.
