 The 93374 175th Anniversary box car was first listed in the 2008 catalog. The price was $50.00. I've never seen one listed in a set.

 The first item made were Spanish combs. Here's the history.

A little more description would be helpful.  175th anniversary of what?  What does it say on the side of the car?  Does it have 2 axles or 4?  175 years put it back to 1839 or before.

Thanks Bill for the information.  Your post must have come in while I was thinking.  It takes me awhile.

1833??
my first thought was "that cant possibly be right"..but it is!

Bachmann 175th anniversary HO scale boxcar:
http://hoscrape.seesaa.net/article/396491303.html

The 1833 date refers to the founding of a company that made things like hair brushes made of ivory.
then they got into plastics in the early 20th century, and made things like plastic sunglasses.
They started making model trains in 1968:
