The car was actually a Budd Pioneer III electric MU car. The Pioneer III
was an experimental car that preceeded (and looks very similar to) a

The Railroad Museum of PA at Strasburg has a pair of them that have
been preserved. They also have a Metroliner car too. (I shot both of
them back in May when I was at Strasburg.)
