Consider Yellow Ochre, perhaps lightened just a touch with some white.

IIRC, I used Scalecoat Reefer Yellow for mine.
Question: does anyone have a 'go to' paint for the Swift Yellow color?? I prefer lacquers.

In an old issue of Rail Model Journal there was a two-page color photo showing a large number of Swift reefers - most of them in the red scheme.
You might want to check that out - or maybe this photo on the Classic Trains website will answer the question -
Hope this helps,

I, too, have two B&W photos. One is obviously red, the other yellow.
I’m building two Sunshine 6700 series reefers, and I only have two photos of these cars, both in black and white. SRLX 6723 is painted in the yellow banner scheme, and it’s clear that the underframe cover plates and sill steps are yellow, while the rest of the underframe is black. SRLX 6714 is painted in the red scheme, and it’s not possible to determine if the color plates and sill steps are red or black. I can’t tell if the end sills are red or black. I’d appreciate information about the red paint scheme for this car and any color photos available.
