So . . . are there two different ends on these cars – one with 5 wider corrugations per panel; the other with 6?  The new lead stark brick photo seems to show that, unless it’s an illusion.

The DA ends are a natural thought but the ribs are not spaced the same. You have to invert the casting then scrape off details. Scratch building would be an easier path.
