McCoy Circus Car Question

Ok, for all of the McCoy experts out there, here's a tough one!

First, check out the pics -

In the enclosed picture the sides are silk screened different than any other I have seen-has anyone else out there have one of these, and is this an early production model proto type (not marked on the bottom as such)? I am 99.999% positive this is not a repaint and I have found a picture in a December 1968 TTOS Bulletin of this exact same car on display at a November 1968 TTOS meeting at the Arroyo Motor Hotel. Question 2-In the other picture of a plain cardboard box that the Performer Car came in which at first I was ready to throw away as a junk box. Just before I was going to give it a toss I noticed a very distinct rubber stamped 255 on the side and the end. Is this to a very early unmarked McCoy box?

McCoy experts, chime in!
