Getting back to the original theme, I am not sure if the "Phartz & Howe" Baked Beans car that Con-Cor did in N Scale was inspired by a Red Ball car, but it is likely. There was also a "Burpo Beer" car that I think both Con-Cor and Micro-Trains did that might have been a Red Ball job too.....
Those were both Main Line wood kits in HO, IIRC. I'm not aware Red Ball did either one. I bet Denny knows.
