Bruce is correct. Many prewar riveted USQX cars were painted
aluminum when new, but AFAIK all of the welded cars were delivered in
black and stayed that way at least until the late 1950s, after the
reporting marks changed to DODX.

Is there any record out there as to how the prewar ACF Type 27 USQX cars were painted and lettered after they became USAX cars in the postwar era?
