If I remember correctly, the stock car is based loosely on the Pennsy K7 stock car.

Subject: [STMFC] Roundhouse/MDC metal cars

Back in the day MDC made a number of freight car kits using metal
castings. Except for the drop-bottom gondola I don't recall anyone
ever identifying prototypes for any of the MDC metal cars.

I searched the archives and came up with some information/suppositions
about the later plastic model's prototypes.

I am specifically interested in the old Roundhouse stock car with
metal sides and the single-sheathed box car with metal truss and wood
sides. Does anyone know if either have a prototype and if so, what?
