Hi again Steve!

That's a non-starter, unless you're thinking about using only the underframe and the wood from the IMC kit and scratching everything else! The sides are completely different, as are the ends. Actually, this car would be pretty simple to scratchbuild, since everything on it except for the ends are stock Evergreen parts. Using Archer rivets would make the process a whole lot faster.

I'll send you some information on these cars off-list shortly.
