Question re Des Plaines Hobbies passenger car kits

I'm trying to match up the old DPH kit cars to their current CCS/IM incarnations. Am I correct in assuming that none of these cars have ever received the CCS/IM treatment?

DPN 1500 - C&NW 400 Baggage-Tap-Lounge
DPN 1502 - C&NW 400 Coach w/ Stewardess Room
DPN 1503 - C&NW 400 Parlor
DPN 1504 - C&NW 400 Diner
DPN 1506 - C&NW Northern Series 16-3-1 Sleeper
DPN 1510 - SP Shasta Baggage-Mail
DPN 1511 - SP 46-Seat News Agent Chair
DPN 1512 - SP 48-Seat Chair
DPN 1513 - SP 38-Seat Chair
DPN 1515 - SP Timberlake Tavern Car
DPN 1521 - 4-4-2 Postwar Pullman

Thanks!
-Mark

Much appreciated, Jerry. A couple of clarifications -

I was thinking that it was DPN 1519 "SP 1954 48 SEAT COACH" that became CCS6720-6722, not DPN 1512. Is 1519 then a "no"?

CCS6750 is "announced, not yet delivered", correct?

Thanks,
-Mark

My bad... you are correct about it being the 1519 kit.  The "line" (for lack of a better description) below the window section is present on  the IMRC models.  Here is a link to one of the IMRC images that shows, well, the line below the windows (its there... just very hard to see)...

The same line can be seen in the image of SP 219 (ex-222, nee-2396) Instruction car rblt. from one of the later coaches...

Ageing is inevitable - maturity is optional.
