Rapido 52'6" gondolas

I have three undec cars in brown.  It looks like they would make NYC cars with a change from grab irons to ladders.  What other cars are these close to?

Nice models, the undecs come with two kinds of braces and 3 sets of trucks, solid bearing, solid bearing converted to roller bearing and roller bearing.

Those were a Canadian prototype, so not an exact match for anything south of the border.

How many were built from 1943 until 1951? I do need some Canadian cars as I want to model the Niagara Frontier and will probably want either the Rapido gon or the Westerfield gon.
