I have the A. E. Staley corn syrup car in the orange paint scheme. The car has a built date of 1920... but the tiny lettering on the right side has a stencil date of 1953. So I know that car is ok for me. A 1920's version of the same car probably was black.
There was a silver Staley scheme too, IIRC. I think Drake did it on their brass GATC 8k car--possibly valid.
