The #24203 hopper was produced in 1958, and again in 1963 and 1964, in a total of 5 variations. Three variations, all with sintered-iron truck and knuckle couplers, were produced in 1958. The first of the 1958 variations has a black plastic body. The second has a glossy black painted body and the third has a marbleized plastic body because of traces of white plastic residue that was left in the mold. The two remaining variation, both of which were produced in 1963 and 1964, have Pike-Master trucks and couplers. One variation, as shown in the photo, has a dull black plastic body while the second has a shinny plastic body.
