Scott – These cars were built under contract by AC&F. There were at least 3 iterations as the use of steel increased. You can see them in the AC&F disk offered by Westerfield Models LLC from the new owner. – Al Westerfield

The model isn't too bad except for the underbody truss which should NOT be flush with the side sill, but back under the car. I can provide photos of the SP versions to you (off list) if you want.
