LCL Corp 1956 inventory shows that there were 216 containers were owned by Carbide & Carbon Chemical and were in assigned service to Union Carbide for Calcium Carbide serve.
I have drawings of some of these containers, but my drawings are for a flat top version, not the peaked top version shown in your photo.
I attempted to attach them.

None of the ORER data gives me much to scale off of vertically except the inside height. But at 17", I'm thinking it has a wood floor or maybe some sort of brackets or bracing to hold the containers.
If this car is anything like the SP version, there are good interior photos in my volume on SP flat cars, Vol. 3 of the series, _Southern Pacific Freight Cars_ that was published by Signature Press.
