Your friend overeggs the pudding a bit.  Only two Class X26C boxcars (105136 and 107324) were equipped to handle LCL freight, and there is no evidence to date, either photo or written documentation, that these were ever painted in MS1.  It's highly likely they were as the other classes so equipped received MS1, so if your search turns something up, it would be great.
