Could it have been "kit bashed"? It's a really strange duck!
Back in the 1950s, EMD had solid plaster models made as "give-away" desk display items for customers. They were all O Scale, and I personally have an E8 (painted & lettered for SP Daylight), an A-B F-7 set (Painted & Lettered for DL&W), and I have seen models of some various export units, and GP7/GP9 units. The base of the trucks are even designed to fit into O Scale 2-Rail track for display.

Anyone know if they included boxes for shipping
No, i.e. no "shipping boxes", as they were generally presented in person by the EMD Salesman (Sales Representative, or District Manager, or Regional Sales Manager).
and did they come with EMD presentation cards?
No. No "presentation cards".
