Spindle Identification

Guys,
I am hoping someone can help me identify a front spindle. Please see the pics. It uses the larger diameter bearings but has a 4 hole brake bracket mount. It also appears to be dropped by 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. It has a 10 degree pin angle and uses 7 degree ball joint tapers. The outside dimension from the top ball joint surface to the bottom ball joint surface is 6.8 inches. This is about 3/4 inch shorter than a mid 70's Mustang II spindle which is 7 5/8 ball joint to ball joint. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

For sure a made up spindle. You can bet it is a simple cast--NOT FORDGED spindle.
If not Forged, the two welded back to back will made a good boat anchor--About only good these non fordged are.
