Pat Wider, in RP CYC 13 p 22, says the following about MILW 50000-50474: “Increased roof height was made possible by the use of 3/16” Alan Wood Super-Diamond Pattern Floor Plate instead of a conventional running board, and applying the latitudinal floor-plate running board with only ¼” clearance between the roof sheet and the bottom of the running board.” And that they had: “leak-proof welded Youngstown side doors”. Photos on pp 48-50 show that these didn’t look like normal Youngstown doors: more like seven-panel Superior doors, though not identical to those either (the bottom panel was wider than the others).
