Re: LIFE: what's this

What intrigues me is the steel end -- at least it appears to be
a steel end. I think the only steel ended PFE wood sheathed reefers
in 1942 would be the R-70-2 50 foot ice reefers. Tony, any opinion?

The car in question is a PFE reefer. The markings in question are blocks for the repack stencils; note the repack stencil in the lower block.

Please get this straight - they're not "re-painted" marks - in this case, they're repack stencils.
