I will agree with Mike, with one small exception. Cars in this series did have heaters. The pairs of rivets along the lower half of the tank sides are a clue, confirmed in the 1952 UTLX listing.

UTLX 45622 appears in the 1955 Tank Car Tariff with 7900 gallons capacity and a 207 gallon dome; a simple tanker with no heater. Further, to me, it seems a near-dead-on match for the Tangent General American 1917-Design 8000 gallon Tank Car 19005-01 model. Only the KC brakes and the trucks on the model are different.

Some extra image data can be seen at the link below...
Note the image is mirror reversed.
I'm not a tank car expert, but I suspect this particular car was built to a GATX design - am I correct?
