Bruce, looking at the HV car, note that the bracket is mounted on one of the vertical channels on the end of the car.  I think that the horizontal flat is bent upwards and secured into the flat of the channel. 

Look at this photo of the Hocking Valley car; the bend at the top of the bracket is evident. It attaches to the bottom flange of the channel sill.
