Looks like it says:

PAINTS * CHEMICALS
DURKEE FAMOUS FOODS

I'm thinking that this might actually be a Glidden car since according to Wikipedia - 
  • Durkee is an American brand name for former Glidden Company foodstuffs division, originally founded by Eugene R. Durkee in 1857. It is now owned by Memphis, Tennessee-based ACH Food Companies.
The Glidden company history at http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/the-glidden-company-history/ seems to bear this out, since the company was in all three product lines around that time.

Elden the car lettering says “paints - chemicals” and has what looks to be a Dupont logo on the left side. I seriously doubt that Heinz would be shipping vinegar in a chemical car. Perhaps the car was delivering a cleaning agent of some sort, or it had simply been off spotted.
