Advice/help replacing stolen vintage Colnago

I didnít know what I had at the time and the story is very long and distressing, so here are my questions and all I can remember. I was not the first owner but I got it really cheap and it was mint. Minty mint. I now want to replace it piece by piece if I must but need help understanding what it was.

Questions, followed by description:

- was this a Superissimo?
- what year was it approximately?
- is the frame Iím looking at buying a suitable replacement? (Iíll post pics when I can)
- what drivetrain do I want to be cool and at least close to being period correct?

Thanks in advance. This is killing me!

- mid/late 80ís all campy fire engine red steel flawless colnago, all logos are white
- doesnít say master or super or have championship stripe decals like Mexico
- cobalto brake set, white hoods, triangle shaped brake pad guides were white, not black
- 6 speed, black face plate rear derailleur
- all other components campy brev except as noted
- internal top tube cable routing
- chrome raked fork with panto logos on rounded not flat fork crown
- black Ernesto pantographed quill stem
- Lugs all painted, not chrome
- clover engraved top of seat stays
- bottom bracket cutout but canít remember whether it also said colnago or not
- drive side chrome chain stay with indentation, non drive side painted
- black spoon friction resin shifters, panto
- campy brev hubs on tubular wheelset
- white concor non-perf saddle
- white bar tape with red colnago and red pinstripe
- chrome colored matching frame pump
- single seat tube decal, not double; water bottle boss in middle of c. Ernestoís signature is there.
- lugs are all painted,not chromed.

What was this? What am I shopping for?

I would be So grateful for any help. Thank you!
