SL-SF open-top car color


While we're on the subject of Frisco, I have noticed that early offset-side twin hoppers and covered hoppers, when new, were black.  Later ones were that Frisco red.  The Frisco gons of the 'Greenville' style were black when new, and I think later ones were red.  I presume the standard changed for all at the same time.  Any idea when that was?  Was it likely that there could have been Frisco open-top cars in black up to the end of this list?
