Thanks for the quick reply, is this the version with the Swift logo on
the right side of the car in white letters on a red rectangle? Guy Brooke

Can anyone comment on what the color of Swift reefers was just after
the 1938 cutoff on billboard schemes, and perhaps when the earliest of
the red scheme cars appeared. Thanks Guy Brooke

Yellow sides, mineral red roof and ends, black underframe and
trucks. The all-red scheme did not appear until late 1949/early 1950.
