Description Southern Pacific Daylight Paint Sample
Category Paint Sample

These photos show two sides of the hand painted sample showing two different designs.  The first photo is the hand lettered two color design.  The other side show only the darker red base coat of paint, without the orange stripe or lettering.  This car was first owned by Maury Romer who sold it to Dave Garrigues in the early 80's.  Dave subsequently sold it to Charlie Sommer and it now resides in the collection of Bill Cucchi.  Obviously this model never made  it to production.
