The engine should be Cummind Beige. Tamiya Deck Tan XF55 is a good match.
As far as the no part numbers on the sprues, most of the Round2 reissues don't have numbers on the sprues; or the numbers on the sprues are the old numbers & they don't match the instructions.

Thanks JImB for the response! Even though there are no numbers, the build is coming together.

I am thinking, that I may have to put this kit on shelf, till I get a few more builds completed. I made it to Part 3: Basic Chassis - I can't figure out Step 2: Crossmember braces how they are suppose to be attached , and I can't even find step 4 on the sprue tree - Below is a link to the instructions, if anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

When I built mine I hated this part. What I did was first glue in the main crossmember pieces, there are little bumps on the inside of the upper frame rail to locate them. I glued them in making sure they stayed pressed firmly against the upper lip of the frame rail. Once they were dry I got the braces cleaned up and turned the frame over. The braces fit one of the small flat surfaces on the bottom of the main crossmember and the other end goes to the lower lip of the frame rail. Basically, the little square pieces hand down at a 45 degree angle and connect the upper crossmember to the bottom lip of the frame rail.

These old AMT kits had instructions that required a fair amount of interpretation on the part of the builder - keep dry fitting parts and studying the diagrams and you'll get there!!
