GACX “Multifoods 1974” gives modelers a beautiful 1970s GACX leased car option. International Multifoods (renamed from International Milling in 1970) leased a group of cars from GATX in June 1974. This scheme is classic 1970s, with the light blue logo and distinctive black lettering across the sides of the car. Correct phase details are present including low mounted brake details, a later body with wide side posts, and an Apex running board. Check out those light gray trucks, as delivered, with rotating Timken roller bearing caps! This scheme is available in two accurate numbers.
