Default vintage Rossi Oro motor, someone knows more?

I got an old car from 1982 and would like to know more on the motor.
Someone told me this motor should be a Novarossi Testa Oro but it seems to me there had been several versions or something. Also Im no expert at nitro motors.

Searching trough internet I found pictures of several motors looking like mine motor but have different name at the case. At one picture you can see just "Nova" but parts of car are hiding full name. An other motor says "Rossi C21" where my motor shows "Rossi 21" without C.
Someone has an idea on this and what age my motor exactly is?

Testa Oro means "Gold Head" in Italian.

I have seen these engines running back in 1990 on clublevel and had several colors heads, black, gold and red.
