Thank you for the education. Much appreciated. 

I am also planning on attempting to model a couple of cars of this class. Do you have any suggestions for modeling the correct ends?

From the ground, I think it may be hard to see the difference between the
"Stanray" (SRE) rectangular panel roof and the ACF "carbuilder" roof. Both
have stamped rectangles in each panel but the ACF has a secondary stamping
in the middle of the panels.

That photo is a Jim Sands shot from 1966.

I am not sure if this image will be of much help in answering your questions… but wortth a shot…

To my very untrained eyeballs it appears that the car has a raised panel roof. Maybe. Hard to tell from this view.

Cheers & Happy Modeling,
