Rob it looks like and X28a to me, car number appears to be 123353
which matches a number assigned to a X28a. X28a's were rebuilt from
1-1/2 door X28 cars.  The X28 was slightly taller than the X29 built
originally for automobile trade. Rob's website has some more
information http://prr.railfan.net/freight/classpage.html?class=X28

I would agree and add that the paint out above the PENNSYLVANIA is
"AUTOMOBILES". It looks like you can see the fresh paint where the
left 1/2 door was removed (note that the last letter or two of
PENNSYLVANIA appears brighter too). Also note that the second grab on
the left has yet to be applied.
