They do. A photo of the prototype, plus plans, are in the 1940 Car Builders Cyclopedia, pages 236-37. The car in the photo is Erie 44000. It has drop doors.

Also, I need to correct myself regarding the Lindberg stock car. The article I referred to was in the January 1991 RMC, pages 86-87: "Build a Milwaukee Road stock car" by John Swanson.

I bought a pair of the Lindbergh gons several years ago. IIRC, they follow an Erie coal gondola prototype.
