Had they built a 2nd Avenue subway in the 1950's, the car that would have been in mass production for it would have been the R16.
Be careful what you wish for.

The TA (or B of T) tried Budd with the R11, then got cheap with ACF and st Louis.

Went back to Budd for the R32, then got cheap again, and bought St Loui's rust-buckets, 1,352 of them for the "B" Divsion. All but 113 are gone. 230 R32's still exist.
