Hooker Chemical Tank Car was first offered in 1961 and then for a second time as #(24329) in 1965-66. A common practice today is to put the catalog number in parenthesis, if the number does not appear on the car. However, Gilbert assigned #24329 to both releases of the car. The 1961 model has one variation however, within that variation the car can be found with two different shades of orange tanks. The 1965-66 #(24329) model has three variations all of which has no information printed on the tank body, which includes the car number. The first, shown in the photo, is orange, without a black band. However, it has a black platform and blackened unpainted handrails and ladders. The second has a light orange body and a black band. The last variation is a stripped down car made in 1965 only. It is orange and lacks a black band, a platform, handrails, ladders, a brake wheel, and diamond markers.
