Walthers has one in stock (https://www.walthers.com/international-r-7600-3-axle-cement-mixer-assembled-white) in their SceneMaster line - too new for your time period, but you may be able to take the mixer off the frame and mount it on a different truck frame.
Two comments, the hydraulically operated "training wheels" weight transfer device seems to have been developed in the late sixties, and since it adds to the total load the truck can carry, the mixing drum is likely too large for an older three axle truck... the drum looks too fat to my eye. This modern prototype is also lacking the characteristic crosswise water tank mounted high just behind the cab.
