It certainly needs fresh paint.
Read the OP's first post again: he said the 1981 Super was black. The two photos are of the same bike. The chrome chainstay might be throwing you off; I'd imagine that might have been one of these sticker versions Colnago did for a couple years.

It doesn't matter now anyway as the frame is on the way to being refinished and that's okay. Now that the paint's off, I'm looking forward to seeing the restoration
