I thought it was all OG paint but the RHS of the bus had a later door fitted and the whole side had been repainted. There was some accident damage on the A and B posts which were covered in lead.

I cut all the side panels etc off and had the bus blasted, which I now regret:

I don't know if it's the lighting but it does look lighter to me.

Maybe it sat for 30 years folded down?

I think your right EV. Look at the base 2 different shades. Deep clean might sort it?

Anyone know how unusual a 1958 pressed bumper walkthrough mango with a 3/4 middle seat is?

the bus nerds will want it. pressed bumper walkthroughs are not that many in any color. Not rare, but also a lot fewer than later walkthroughs.

10 walkthroughs for sale right now, none of them press bumper.

I'd say any legit pressed bumper Mango would be uncommon since that is a short time frame.

I agree it's sort of a Bus nerd thing though.

Walk-thru would be even less common.

Short middle seat even less common, although I don't know if that would affect the value. Obviously if it has a nice original 3/4 caramel middle seat that is valuable.
