Numbers aren't right for demo. Would be between 60K and 70K. On the trans on the right side of the bell housing stamped just above the two holes will be the recall tracking numbers. Do you have these numbers? There should also be casting code number and production number on the trans. What are these number. Personally I would not paint it gold unless all the number match.
In my photo of my gold demo all the numbers are within the three month period that the gold demos were made.
Now there was an exchange program in the mid 1965 where that would change out the early ORC trans for a later DDC trans. The dealer was suppose to restamp the original numbers on the on the trans.
My Blue gold demo in the photo has gold all over it but I will not paint in gold because it has a exchange trans. I would sell it if someone wants to make it a gold demo. You can really see the gold where I took the wheel weights off.
If you do paint it gold take photo of all the gold on the tractor before you paint itKirk
