I'm reasonably certain that all 13 737-347s were delivered to Western in full colors of said carrier. I'd worked at LAX for quite awhile & I can say that I've seen alot of 733s in the red/white swizzle stick scheme. Regards.

I believe some came in the red/white scheme, but I'll admit the only WA 737-300 I flew on was of the "Bud Lite" variety, from BOI-SLC shortly before the Delta takeover. I was on several other WA aircraft in the red/white (737-200, 727-200, DC-10).
Also, I recall that the entire fleet was being converted to the bare metal livery before they ceased to exist as an airline. I remember flying a 737-200 from STL-SLC, bare metal, that had just been taken over by DL. The WA titles were removed from the tail, and the fuselage titles were covered with a "Delta" decal. The characteristic red cheatline remained, I assume until the craft was repainted in full DL livery.
