Hi Schuyler,
 
Looks like 2012113 to me, although the last digit is really iffy.  Maybe someone else can confirm or do better.

Looks like 76918 to me. 
Jan 1943 ORER lists it as 40'6" IL, 8'9" IW, 9'4" IH  6" x 8" 8" doors, 3,311 CU FT, CAPY 100000 LBS, with 497 cars in the 76500-76999 series.

Well, obviously I was trying to make numbers out of ink blots, and looking at the wrong blots as well.  Now that I’m looking at the right “ink blots,” I concur with those who see “76918.”

Now that I have the responses, including this useful information from Ed, I agree that the car number is 76918.  Thanks to all that replied.
