I don’t believe the Texas Zephyr betterment cars received the simulated corrugation treatment, only different shades of aluminum/silver paint to simulate stainless steel.

Zephyr Tower and Rocket Tower used on the Zephyr Rocket did get the full scheme.  Offhand, I don’t know about the Missouri Tower and Denver Tower.

A number of other heavyweight Pullmans did get the scheme as well as some Burlington Route owned cars.

Not sure of the name but it appears to be one of the Texas Zephyr Heavyweight Pullmans with the Faux stripes painted to mimic the Stainless Steel Fluting on the lightweight cars.
