Bob,

Judging by the length of the bicycles, I'd say it was a 50' car.

I'm NOT trying to say this as an ass*ole - but...isn't the length directly under the number (just above capy)?   It appears to me to be the case, but it isn't all that clear, which is why I ask.     I'm not conversant with the era's lettering....
