Yes...and no. They have the same "footprint" on the floorpans (at least the same as Herald from GA80001 and future), but the hole for the shift lever is a bit further back on the Vitesse. The good news is that, in North America at least, it's easier to find a suitable replacement cover for a Vitesse, as the GT6 would be the same. For aftermarket, most people prefer the ABS plastic ones to the fiberglass versions as the fit is much better.

Is it missing completely? Originals, made of pressed fiber, are pretty hard to find in decent condition. Again, get the ABS plastic version of a new GT6 cover, and you'll be fine!

As an example: GT6 gearbox cover from SpitBits

Hi- the vitesse gearbox cover is different to the GT6-as the gear shift is
different. The vitesse gearbox may actually be very similar to the 13/60 Herald though. Hope this helps
