2-Rail to 3-Rail Conversion of a Passenger Car

So I found this passenger car on Ebay that's almost the exact car I need for a Petticoat Junction O gauge set I'm making for myself. The problem is it's built for 2-Rail, and I'm not sure what needs to be changed in order for it to run on 3-Rail O Gauge track with O36 Curves. If anyone has any thoughts on the matter, please let me know. Here's the link for the car.

I could use all the help I can get.

Thanks,

Signed,

You'll know more once you have the car in your hands. It's possible you might have to un-build the car to remove the trucks depending on how they're attached. You may be able to put some 3-rail wheelsets in the trucks and be good to go without removing the trucks or having to search for different one's. 

If you just add tinplate wheels to the trucks that's what I would do. Easiest method. Scale City makes body mounted dummy couplers for three rail, so you could remove the scale coupler and install those.
