    Factory painted valve and timing belt cover?

    Found this 740 turbo at a local pickapart and wondered if the factory would paint the valve cover and timing belt cover as an option? Is it representative of anything special? It looks like a normal 530 head. Any history on this kind of thing would be helpful. Thanks in advance. Anthony.
