You're absolutely correct; this thread started with the wood cars and I had that thought.

I could start an entirely different thread on how long the steel cars lasted in white

You have to be careful what you write. I'm sure you meant to say
you haven't seen a photo of a white WOODEN car newer than 1942 ?

The other piece that doesn't jive is per the ORER, any car that had
originally been painted
white had been scrapped, renumbered or given a different reporting
mark by the early fifties.
The latest dated photo I have seen of a white car is 1942
