Overland Models Tank Cars

I came across an ad for Overland Models from '93 or so showing a number of tank cars:

COLX 1068 "Western Asphalt", insulated 10,000 gal
GATX 1929, insulated 10,000 gal
SHPX 4035 "Cities Service", insulated 10,000 gal
USAX 10936 "United States Army", labeled as insulated but clearly uninsulated
GATX 62983 "Schenectady Chemicals", labeled as uninsulated but clearly insulated 8,000 gal w/platform
DUPX 2690 "DuPont", labeled as uninsulated but clearly insulated 8,000 gal w/platform
PAX 359 "Pennzoil", insulated 3-comp w/larger center dome
DRX 2148 "Deep-Rock", insulated 3-comp w/larger center dome

Do these match real cars? In particular, what about the Pennzoil car? When was it in service?

TIA,
KL
