Back on the PC side of things, it would be interesting to find out if they did sell some excess paint to the Mo Pac. It would seem to make finical sense for them.
No.  When Conrail came into being they painted many cabooses and boxcars green to use up the leftover PC green paint.  These cars were painted green but lettered Conrail.
Many railroads had green cars but please don't come to the conclusion that these were ex-PC cars. C&O had many MoW cars painted green too...and some of these might still be running around.
