PC: Re: GG1 4800/CR 7776

Please see a photo of PC 4800 from my collection that Jerry has posted at
http://prozac.cwru.edu/jer/pc/index.html .  It was taken on March 26, 1976
and is probably the last photo of this unit as PC since repainting was about
to take place.

So to answer your question, the engine was repainted during the last week of
March and early April 1976.
