Factory built freighters? The 757 was never built in the factory as a freighter. They've all been converted from passenger use.
The UPS B757 package freighter had a special L-1 entry door.[#] ]
The FedEx fleet is all conversions from passenger versions. They all have the standard L-1 door

Yes it was. All UPS 757 were built new, as freighters.
