Campagnolo rear changers.

Can anyone please explain to me the difference between the Campagnolo Nuovo Record and Record rear changers ? Is one of better quality or operates better than the other, because the secondhand prices vary considerably ?
I am thinking about replacing the Shimano 105 changer on the recently acquired Coppi [Fiorelli] bicycle which contributors kindly identified.
The critical factor is that the rear wheel has an 8 speed cassette but I do have a spare 6 speed one which I could use if necessary.
Can anyone please tell me why some Fiorelli made Coppi frames have Coppi decals and others have only Fiorelli decals ? I would guess that my bicycle dates from the late 1970's - early 1980's. Thank you.

I presume you are speaking of the "first" Record derailleur, circa 1963 -68. The design of the two is roughly the same, but the Nuovo Record was a whole new derailleur. The Record is made of chrome plated bronze, had steel jockey and idler wheels, etc. The Nuovo Record was made of aluminum alloy with plastic pulleys and so forth. Weight is one difference. The Record rear is way too early for your bike. Maybe Super Record? Different body design from the Nuovo Record and Titanium top and bottom bolt etc. If the bike is indeed from the late 70's or early 80's, I don't think it should have an "8 speed cassette" on it. In fact, it probably has a freewheel on it, but that still a bit early for 8 speed clusters. They made a few different Super Record derailleurs and they generally improved the shifting characteristics as the derailleur evolved, I understand. Good luck.

They were sold under both names?
