As far as I remember, the 320 I was working on was stainless... The 
front panel had lots of complex gears and such because the case is sort 
of balloon shaped and the gears would allow for the press-in drive 
cover panel to slowly float down when depressed.  Inside there were 
specially designed baffles for the fan in the front, and the 
motherboard does not come out on a tray like most generics are.  The 
floppy was actually hard to work with because the other side of the 
case was welded on not open like most PCs.
