BAR Woodside Reefers?

I have a (I'm guessing it's) Bachmann 40 ft BAR woodside reefer that I was going to practice weathering on.  It has wood sides painted in the "State of Maine Potatoes" scheme, with metal ends (1-3-4 improved dreadnought) and metal roof (4 hatches, diagonal panel,steel running board).  The car number is BAR 61585.

Is this a real prototype, and if so, where can I find some proto-photos? 
RR Picture Archives only has photos for metal-sided cars in the 2500 series (esp. #2574).
Regards,
Paul

That number belongs to a series of BARs Derby built ARA 1924 outside braced wood sheathed cars.  Originally numbered 61000-61599,  they were renumbered to 1000-1599 series circa 1948-1952.
