As I recall, Al Westerfield, at one time, intended to extend the Rock Island cars to include both the Murphy ended and the Dreadnaught ended cars in the lineup. They are discussed in the documentation, but he never got around to doing them.
Rocket Express has also expressed interest, so they might be the one to two the kit or kits.
As a point of interest: The 133xxx series was divided between two builders, ACF and Bettendorf and there was a small difference in the way that the roofs met the ends. I think that I posted a comparison years ago and it is attached here, in case.

I suspect that means as soon as I finish my kitbash, Westerfield will bring out a kit for the car.

The decals in Westerfield kit #6401 *do* include digits for car numbers in the 133XXX series: in fact, number 133804 is included right like that.
