Kato SP Businnes car "old fashion" couplers !!!

Just received here a pack from MBK with some cars. One of these is the Kato Businnes car .

When I open the car's plastic box I was surprised, as ...
Rear coupler is a body mounted Kato but ... other side coupler was a "silver painted" ARNOLD RAPIDO! :RUEffinKiddingMe:
The really bad news is : it's truck-mounted!
Anybody noted this on yours? Have you replaced the whole truck or just "cut & paste" a new MT coupler?
Cheers to all
Enzo

Standard current-design Kato truck couplers will fit in the coupler pocket.  Go to the Kato parts website and look in the business car section, or any of the passenger car sections.

Bryan ... good news this!
I've some Kato couplers in my "just in case" box survived from a chassis I've used to fit Roberto Martari sides.
I will give it a try, thanks!
