Am looking for more information of the cars of the Pure Carbonic company.
Here's an image of one such car:

The pre-1950 cars all seem to be 13'6" (like in the image) or 13' 4" to the
top of the running boards.

Were these cars entirely "custom" (on the outside) or might I find something
similar enough for anything in the HO scale market to use or kitbash?
Opinions?

Any pointers to where I might find other car images would also be most
welcome.

TIA.
