That is the truck/color scheme I mentioned. Interesting to note the Orange-Red cab matches the nose of the E-1, but the stake panels look like the redder Indian Red famous on the post-war diesels. And yes, the fenders look black to me, especially contrasted with the light blue herald on the door.

In the Delano images, did you also notice the ATSF service vehicle? I It looks like a Dodge (power wagon?) painted ATSF orange with blue trim and probably there to provide support materials for the diesel fuel tank cars.
I don't think Dodge started using the Power Wagon name for civilian vehicles until after the war. From the little of the horizontal grill I can see, looks like it could be an International, but really, it could be a lot of things.
And, I don't think the fenders and frame are blue, but rather black. Black fenders on any color truck were pretty common back in those days.
