GATX 1961 & 66 "Manual"s

I have as yet not managed to dredge up a photocopy of the 1961 GATX Tank Car Manual. But working from a photocopy of the 1966 version, I wonder how many of the drawings are suitable to STMFC's era - i.e. when were these built?

Is it possible to date these drawings (or - more important - the date of the cars built to them?):
p.88 - ICC 103-W 10000 gallons non-insulated
p.89 - ICC 103-W 10000 gallons insulated
p.91 - ICC 103A-W 7000 gallons non-insulated
p.9? - ICC 103A-N-W 8000 gallons non-insulated
p.94 - ICC 103AL-W 10000 gallons insulated
p.96 - ICC 103A-AL-W 10000 gallons non-insulated
p.98 - ICC 103B-W 8000 gallons non-insulated
p.100 - ICC 103C-W 8000 gallons non-insulated
p.102 - ICC 103D-W 8000 gallons 2 compartments non-insulated
p.104 - ICC 103E-W 8000 gallons insulated
p.105 - ICC 105A300-W 11000 gallons insulated
p.106 - ICC 105A300-W 55 ton chlorine built to ICC 105A500-W insulated
p.110 - ICC 105A600-W 12600 gallons for Anhydrous Hydrogen chloride insulated
p.111 - ICC 105A200AL-W 10200 gallons insulated

I am quite sure these are completely useless to me for 1946, but wonder about their usefulness for friends modelling 1952 and 1953.

Thanks to any who can help out on this,
