If you reread the previous messages of this inquiry, esp the one by Mike Schleigh on Tuesday, you will discover these cars were rebuilt with steel sides in the 30’s. It appears they were originally double sheathed wood cars, note the end braces. Hence the wood door, which looks to be to be original.
