if it runs ok on high throttle may just be an adjustment.  I have talked to old some Sears repair guys and knew a couple guys that worked there at Sears selling them, and it seems that the orange and blue ones wasn't so much a "year" thing as it was the orange ones were sold at a  cheaper price point than the blue ones. Another guy I have known for years has a '67 like this and it's blue, never been painted, he has paperwork from when it was bought brand new by an uncle.   Blue ones were more likely to have headlights, a tail light, cig lighter than the orange ones.

I have seen earlier 60s models that were also blue.

I live only 30 miles from where I grew up, but now I am only 3 miles from the plant where most of these machines were made. I'm always hearing "friend of friend" stories of people who worked there.

Did you buy it? If so, have you worked out the idle problem?
