as long as we are speaking H0scale, I can say there are some brass models with operating end doors. I remember Oriental Limited importing a SP 50' car, outside-braces but with steel sides, a C&O 40' steel box car from the same importer, and a UP 50' outside-braced car imported by Overland.
I have one of the SP cars and saw pics of the other ones - none of the three match today's standards in detail.
Possibly there were others, but I don't know.

This would make an interesting siding. Does anyone make opening end doors that operate? Has anyone modified a car to have open end doors?
