GSC castings had MANY
holes in them... maybe their abilities had something to do with

As are holes in the stake pockets and other locations.

If they were cast in, that would indicate that the mold
material would be trapped against the car body casting and also
in the holes themselves. I suspect there would be a high rate of
mold failures where the holes are supposed to end up being, no?
I would suggest the possibility that the casting was poured
without any special accomodation for the holes, and when removed
from the mold the holes were drilled at the foundry prior to
shipping. The foundry could have a set of pre-made jigs to
properly locate the drill and therefore the holes, speeding the
process when a large number of castings need to be drilled
