    I thought they were originally lavender, then GM switched the color to pink?

    the 73 case i once had, which was all cast iron- even the tail housing- was all black. i've seen some chevy orange too but it may not have been original. most i've seen are black though with the aluminum tail housing. hope this helps

    Not sure about 203s, but NP205s were painted a Mopar red color. This was because at the time, New Process Gear was owned by Chrysler corp. You usually have to dig pretty deep to find any trace of the original color.

    My 1975 NP203 was black and rust (real rust) with the aluminum parts un-painted. It's now light red (pink) with clear-coat on the aluminum parts.
