I might be confused here. I have a couple of the Ambroid cylindrical hoppers and they definely are in regular Ambroid boxes. I think I know the tank car you are talking about and I can't recall the manufacturer at present but will find out.
There was a Scale Craft Engineering that released an Ambroid/Northeastern/Quality Craft type TTX Finger Rack flat car. They had one other release that doesn't come to mind but I have at least one. I never attempted to build the two Finger Racks I have. Someday maybe I'll substitute plastic for wood.

There was another manufacturer of Ambroid freight car kits - Scalecraft
They had kits for a cylindrical NYC covered hopper and a large tank car. Kits had many more soft metal castings than most of the Ambroid kits. Al lthe casting I saw warped.
