Was the steel plate installed on the door when the car was reconfigured to a smaller door opening?

Some time ago I purchased this NEB&W Green Dot Models, Illinois Central single sheathed boxcar kit that was partially built. I am going to start working to finish the build but would like some information about the prototype. I am looking at the lack of diagonal on the panel to the left of the door. Did this car originally have a door and a half? What number series does this car fall? Does anyone have a prototype photo?
It looks like F&C has a kit for this car, F&C #6270, and my kits instructions say go to F&C for replacement parts.
