Is there any chance that this car in Independence, Iowa is one of these cars?  I have attached some photos taken in Sept 2019.  The odd thing for a milk (or vinegar) car is that it has end doors.   It can be seen in Google Street View at:,-91.8891952,3a,60y,102.96h,90.93t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sQVJ5Zh7NRy8zPjIFhGVqZQ!2e0!7i3328!8i1664?hl=en
