Likely black, originally, when built in 1942.  These had as you can see the small diamond.  Larger 6’ diamond were applied not long after.  When are you modeling?


Schuyler and Armand,
According to ACF paint specs in the bill of materials for lot 2288 (Erie 95000-95099), for new cars the roof seam caps were coated with black car cement while the rest of the roof (and running board) was unpainted galvanized steel. 

Sides & doors were Pittsburgh Carhide Brown. Black (car cement) applied to the u/f and ends. Black truck side frames. White stencils with white & black Erie monogram. 
Regards,
Ed Hawkins
