Re: Black Hinges on PFE Reefers

Model manufacturers often paint the side door hooks Black, but I believe they were Orange.

Dick, a builder photo of R-40-10 PFE 42225 definitely shows black door hooks.
A 1920's builder photo of R-40-13 PFE 35474 appears to show orange hooks, with
a shadow as you described. So at least for a time in the 1930's, the hooks got
black paint -- but this exhausts my PFE ice reefer builder photos collection. :-)
