Anything I think sweet aire cap and rotor were red. The wheels i think 60 and 61 were red. The red hues are different but I have old red wheels from 560 and 561.
The 70s wheels would have the little nob pretruting.
The trim could be painted. I actually have a red bag topper but bag toppers came in 562. I know the classic 3 has a distinct shape. I wonder if it was a replacement for original.

Your red bag top was from one of the rebuild kits sent to vac shops in the 70s and 80s. I've also seen them in blue and I think they offered a green one. Reply 22 here:
