PC: Re: Re: PC Color Guide

I have photos of 100% PC painted 1000-1100 series MU cars both with and
without the "M" under the car number.  Most were taken at the Croton -North
scrap lines in the late 1970,s.  Actually the cars seemed to be in pretty
good condition for being retired.  Was this just hap-hazard PC repainting? 
I plan to model a fleet of these cars.  Any info would help.     Also of
interest sitting in the weeds at the time were ex-NH observation "Bunker
Hill" and PC ex-NYC tavern-lounge 4447,  as well as a few PC/Amtrak ex-NYC
E units in PC black and retired FL-9's.    The first time I photographed
"Bunker Hill", it had PC logos.  The next time, they had been 'removed' ,
I'll bet not by the railroad!
