Did any Blimp cars get refitted with plug doors?

Folks, do we know if any of the Central's Blimp cars were refitted with plug doors while still wearing the oval paint scheme? The working part of my brain seems to recall seeing a picture of one, but I'd like a second opinion before I commit a modeling crime. Thanks again.

I went through all of my freight car slides and found no blimp cars with plug doors... not even the repainted ones. -Tom A.

Hi Rob, good to hear from you again. I've never seen anything to suggest that the blimp cars were refitted with plug doors. I know the later "Safer Shipping" cars came that way. Todd Horton
