I have a really old Roller Freight car kit with painted sides and the rest unpainted. The sides are red with a white stripe and yellow roller on it. Does anyone know what the roof, ends and bottom should be? A quick google images brought up mostly all yellow cars and the couple red ones I found I could see a smidge of red roof but not the ends.

Found this one too, with the listing description.

Listing is for an out-of-production, HO scale boxcar. With its blue roof and blue ends, the “Standard Guide to Athearn Model Trains” lists its availability as "OP3: Out of production; rare – not likely to be found” (but that was when the guide was published in 1998, so it is even harder to find now especially since Athearn ceased production of blue box kits in 2009). Doors on both sides slide open/close.

I just noticed that the letters under the Roller freight are different.
The red one looks like red ends, can't see the bottom. Black would work?
