ATSF Bx-27 boxcars had early Duryea underframes. That would show up by having the couplers stand out from the end of the car by about a foot. If you don't want to model the Duryea underframe you can at least simulate it by moving the coupler pockets out that one foot distance. Also these cars were delivered before the map schemes. So the car you have would represent a repainted car.
