Zooming in on the number, it appears likely that it is a renumbering and the most likely candidate is a car from the 91850-92349 series built by Pressed Steel Car company.  In the July 1950 ORER there were only 317 of the 500 cars built with end doors remaining in that series while there had been 492 in 1945, before any cars entered the 55xxx series.  In the PM freight car book it says that the 55xxx series came from the 89350-90249, which were single sheathed auto cars, some of which were completely rebuit.
