Does anyone know the prototype for these kits? Are they acccurate for
any class of PFE reefer?

No - and it's not as though we need yet more models of PFE wood
reefers. The prototypes for the Accurail reefers were originally
built for the Burlington in the early 1920s, then absorbed into the
Growers Express fleet as BREX cars when the Q turned over its reefer
operations to FGE. The model represents these cars in modified form
as they appeared after World War II.
