There are also a couple of photos of steel side cars at the end of the
RPC-12 article on plywood side cars. According to the article, these
cars were in the 38375-38499 series. These had 4-4 dreadnaught ends
but they also had a channel end sill and side sill similar to or the
same as the plywood side cars. There was also a photo of an aluminum
car which became 40000. Photo in the '49 and '53 Cyc shows this car to
have the 3/3 IDE end.
At least two cars in the 38500 - 38634 series (38560 and 38608) had 4
panel sides similar to the ART cars, but the seam looks different to me
and the doors and side tabs are different, too.
