Since the car was originally built with 10'0" IH and 4/5 square-
cornered Dreadnaught ends, a Red Caboose auto car kit with square-
cornered ends would be a good starting point (if you can find one).
You would then have to jack up the roof by 6", which is exactly what
was done on the prototype cars.
