I trust this car's origins are before the cutoff date for this group. Looking at the car's end, I wonder if this car was rebuilt from a boxcar?

Sure was… specifically from CN 508017 in 1967 — this car was originally built by Canadian Car & Foundry in April 1930, and was an example of a CNR 1929 standard boxcar.  As built, these were relatively low-roofed cars, and you can see more-or-less where the original roof line was.
