Bill Welch asked:

Another curiosity I have noted with the plug door cars owned by all
four companies is that the top rib of the top panel is straight
across the bottom, giving it an incomplete look. Anyone have
thoughts why this rib took this form?

It keeps the top corner of the rib out of the eave notch.
