Produced on a YELLOW body, it would be painted DARK RED and BLACK with YELLOW heat-stamped lettering. Reproduction shells use a silk screen process. A growing problem in the aging of these units is the stress placed on the ends that mount to the chassis. This, and tension induced by the insertion of the oversized headlight lens has caused cracks on the ends. There are no variations.
