History
The 6035 is the second short 8" single dome tank car produced by Lionel in the postwar era. It's also the first to include regular knuckle couplers -- as opposed to odd-looking scout-type couplers -- which were included on the first short tanker, the 1005.

The 6035 was a result of Lionel wanting to manufacturer a less expensive tank car for its introductory train sets. Beginning in 1952, the 6035 replaced the 6465 as the traditional tank car included in all 027 beginner sets. The 6035 is a common tank car and easy to locate. The lettering is usually worn off from handling and examples with perfect lettering are hard to find.

Features
Standard features on the 6035 are minimal. It includes: an unpainted gray single dome body, dark-blue Lionel Lines lettering, metal frame, scout trucks, operating magnetic couplers plus a Sunoco logo
