Re: Outrageous Foobie

Speaking of Foobies, was the white Varney (later LifeLike) Frisco Norge boxcar based on advertising artwork to promote the new appliance factory in Fort Smith, Arkansas? I know no revenue cars like this ever existed but heard getting Borg-Warner to locate a plant there was a big victory for Arkansas in 1961.

I do understand they passed out the Varney plastic cars as promotional items as they would coozies and caps and T-shirts today.
