Fail. The car has NOT been rebuilt, and you can make out an oval on the car side. NOT NKP, but NYC, specifically NYC 234700-234945 (ex-T&OC 14000-14249), Lot 386-B USRA DS boxcar

With the distinctive NYC system vertical board through both door stops to make a solid surface for the door to open against.
