SOCKS 5 proxy software that accepts an HTTP proxy as its parent proxy

TOR does it, for example if you are behind a corporate HTTP proxy. But TOR is not wanted here. Does proxy software exist that acts as a SOCKS 5 proxy while accepting an HTTP proxy as its parent proxy? Question is in the anonymity and privacy section because such a proxy is unlikely to make sense in a context other than tunneling and anonymity. This is SOCKS over HTTP, would it need a server with added software as an exit node?
