Not true. Funaro offers three Loree-era D&H composite hopper-bottom gons. These have been in their line since the mid-1980s.
These cars were on their way out by the transition era (< 10 of each type by 1950 IIRC), but have that funky throwback Loree-era vibe shared by the original configuration Seley hoppers.
