I am curious what roads had this version:

8' Superior Doors

Strictly speaking, none. The Standard Railway Equipment Company did not start calling itself "Stanray" until after the time period of this list. For 1937 AAR box cars, both sharp-corner and W-corner-post ends are possible, but I suspect 8-ft. doors were pretty rare at that time.
