23401 and 52374 the engine is a k161-7hp spec

n0 28533e or 28533c serial n0 490165

There's some debate as to whether the original colour on 'my' RAM is cream? Was there a cream colour RAM available in the States or for export? There are gold coloured ones in the UK and green ones too but cream?!

No, never a cream color

The metallic gold when it fades tends to get lighter and have a "cream" appearance sometimes.

The pic I posted is the original color scheme.
