Before my bus got it's extreme makeover to be a refrigerated meat delivery bus by a company in Austria, the original color was L345. The inside of the cab still has it's original paint. Cool

The bus is currently up for sale. If it doesn't sell, it will eventually find it's way back to L345. Very Happy

There are. You can just make out some outlines. I've done some small testing to see if the "fingerpaint" will come off. It doesn't come off as easy as resprayed auto paint.

I've had it since 2001. It is 90% OG paint, except the door.

If anyone has a cargo door, please help!!

My M-plate is from a 62 Deluxe, somehow. Rolling Eyes

I took pictures of the wear spots, the inside headlight bucket and the drivers door. I'm certain my Bus has never been repainted.

1960 L345 Light Grey Kombi, all original, original paint, 34,500 original miles, 6 popouts, all 3 seats that look like they've never been sat on, original primer inside that has never seen a drop of moisture, absolutely no rust of any kind anywhere, all matching logo Sigla glass all the way around with no blistering/clouding/fogging, original rubber throughout. This shot is before I stuck the NOS Commercial hubcaps on it several years back...
