Welcome Coffman, the real experts will give you some answers, but just to encourage them a bit of inter porn always works well, if it ain't in the picture it didn't happen.

The gearbox would usually be the same colour as the engine on an Inter. I expect they were painted as a unit at the factory.

Most of these are frankentrucks by now. That box could be out of an earlier truck, with the gold paint, or your cab may have been replaced.

Hi cobbadog, yes was a very tidy truck to start with... very minimal rust and original... apart from the suspected gearbox upgrade...
