20" x 1.75 47-406 cream tires?? do they exist?

Does anyone know if cream 20x1.75 47-406 cream tires can be purchased anywhere for a folding bike? I'm not having much luck and its a shame I love the vintage look

I can find tan sidewall tires.
cream seems to be old school BMX choice, so you'd have to find them as NOS.

there are some white Stelvios around in 20 x 1.10 Schwalbe made for Dahon for their 25 ani bike ... but hard to find for sure as well

The ones on the Citizen Bike Barcelona are made by Kenda, not sure if you can buy them seperately.
I do like how they look.
