Unfortunately I believe HF stopped selling the 7.5.

Back when it first became known these were re-badged Belaires a couple of us did some research on them and what I found indicated also that the only thing different was the color, however I did not have a newer Belaire to actually compare them to. You are right about the 7.5 and they did stop selling it, that thing was a heck of a deal when it was still available!
