    Looks like an ex-Rock Island express and mail storage car. Either their 4300-4324 series (ACF 1958), or 4385-4399 series (ACF 1956). This info is from "Rock Island Color Guide To Freight And Passenger Equipment" by Hile, Hickcox and Miller, Morning Sun, 1996.

    I have heard alot of bad things about Craigs list. I wouldn't trust the guy. This all sounds like a good way to lose $10 bucks to me. Just my $.02.
