The old blue box Mantua reefer kits had paper sides. You'd buy the kit and then select the sides from the dealer's supply. The problem with the one on eBay is that one side was trimmed wrong. The printed legend "Mantua Metal Products Co., Woodbury Heights, N.J." is supposed to be trimmed off. Here's a scan I just made of an untrimmed Mantua reefer side I've had squirreled away for, oh, 60+ years. Still in the original cellophane wrapper.
