This article shows some images that may narrow down the car's color scheme (at least a lot of the lettering) a bit:
Google "Vin Fiz Grape Drink" and you'll find other color images of advertising, etc.

Thanks, James, for this additional information. Perhaps the reason for the failure of Vin Wiz was the startup company’s large numbers of executives, as listed for the junket. Not a lean business machine. Were they all sleeping in the baggage car??
If I had to guess I’d say Purple lettering on the white car. Unusual, sure, but it was a marketing campaign for grape soda.
I am curious as I’ve never seen the term “chauffeur” used in connection with railroading. What this a thing, or a misuse by the reporter? I assume this was akin to a Pullman porter.
Thanks again for more information on an usual car.
