I'm puzzled though 2022 -1958 doesn't equal 71, so where the heck did that come from? That would be 1951...  BTW, the NEW date on the car is 1946, so that isn't it. I did tell the seller that 1958 cu ft was the capacity of the car, not the date the model was produced 🤣

Too funny! Also at least until 1991 I think Intermountain was strictly O scale.
