I haven't found any photos of CB&Q freight cars decorated for War Bonds promotions, but there was a loco and an inspection engine decorated in the First World War to encourage the purchase of War Bonds, and at least two chair cars in WW2.

I have read through the old posts about "Buy War Bonds" and I
that Santa Fe had boxcars, C&EI had boxcars and PRR had hoppers and
boxcars lettered for this service. Did any other railroads have such
cars? Thank you for any help.
While not a freight cars, I have seen a picture of a KCS locomotive
with a buy war bonds painted on the tender.
