Intermountain 8K Tank Cars

IM lists an 8K tank car stencilled for Canton Tank Car Co and another for Globe Oil.
Are there prototypes for these models and while I gather Globe Oil was an oil producer or distributor, what did Canton do?
If correct are these cars appropriate for 1953?
Thanks in advance
cheers

The good news is that both the Canton Tank Car Co. and Globe Oil cars
are based on prototype photos. The bad news is that both companies
were absorbed by others well before 1953 so the prototypes were no
longer around by that date.
