Interesting, but I do have one question. Eric‘s presentation was on ventilated box cars. This looks like a normal refrigerator car. Why was it classified as a ventilated box car?

It's a ventilated refrigerator car, not a ventilated box. This was a common designation before 1950. It refers to ventilation with hatches open, not with ventilation through the door opening.
