McDonnell Airliner Concept 1961 - T-85A?

This model is in the collection of the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum. Not much information with it - only what you see on the tag and the number on the engine.

In going through an incomplete listing of McDonnell Model Numbers (1 July 1974), I have found some information on this that happens to raise some more questions. On page 167 (pages 165 and 166 are missing) I found the continuation of the listing for this model. In the Model Number column is "T-85 (220)", then the Series Letter is "A" - this T-85A matches the number on the engine nacelle. But, Haven't we been told that the Model 220 was the later proposal for the Model 119 Transport? Does anyone have access to pages 165 and 166 of this document?

For what it's worth, here is what I have of the description.

a) WING - 1050 SQ.FT. , SWEEPBACK @ 25% CHORD - 24 DEGREES, DIHEDRAL - 6 DEGREES, THICKNESS RATIO (% CHORD) = 13% (B.L.. 63.0), 9% TIP.

b) HORIZONTAL TAIL - 248.8 SQ.FT. (TRUE AREA), SWEEPBACK @ 25% CHORD = 24 DEGREES, DIHEDRAL = 10 DEGREES,THICKNESS RATIO (% OF CHORD) = 9%

c) VERTICAL TAIL - 208 SQ. FT., SWEEPBACK @ 25% CHORD = 46.5 DEGREES, THICKNESS RATIO (% OF CHORD) = 12%
