      I think it might be refinished. However, I saw one sell on ebay last
      week from a guy in New Zeeland that had the same blue-green color. On
      the bottom view of his bug the paint didn't cover everything and you
      could see crackle black with a stamped logo or number that looked
      military. I will try to post the image I grabbed from ebay to the
      N4HNO folder. The grayish Bunnell in that folder looks alot like
      mine, but I know many companies made them during the war. I thought I
      read somewhere that Vibroplex employees sometimes had custom colors.
