Dennis, I was actually referring to the original cars, not the
rebuilds. Thanks for bringing up the differences in the two panel
side models; one thing that many modelers don't realize is the subtle
variations between the various rebuilds, and knowing that there are
two different kits out there is useful information indeed.
