Actually, there's a scene in F91 where Seabook was looking at the F-91
and discussing about it with the engineers. From what I remember, they
called it a Gundam because "a long time ago there was a mobile suit called
that too", which seems to indicate that "the white mobile suit" is not
really that well remembered because people were only able to recall it
vaguely.

If the true motive was to scare your opponent, then why not build a brand
new high performance suit but slap the old RX-78-2 armor on it... of course
Bandai wouldn't be able to sell new toys and kits, but that's besides the
point.
