I've tried to find reference pictures and not much. But I did note that I've seen them with white interiors when I thought they were supposed to be the pale green. What's the story?

The same with M113s. Very early LVTP7s were also white inside. In the mid-'60s, they tpp changed to seafoam green as it became the standard interior color for US APCs.
