I have an Overland Models Wabash Single Door box car that was
converted from a double door auto box car. Can anyone suggest a
paint
color for circa 1942. A scalecoat paint match would be best since
that is what my painter likes to use. Thanks.

Jason,

I have used Scalecoat II oxide red which looks close to a newly
painted car. I have also painted two cars with Badger Modelflex
light tuscan oxide, but like the Scalecoat color better. The Wabash
#10 freight car red did shift to a more brown color by the mid
1950's.
