    I don't know if it was a regional thing, but I remember the west coast ones a darker shade.

    I don't know Rod. I'm cutting up a Pac-Bell 64 Econoline that came from Oregon and that looks pretty close to the color on it. Ma Bell green.

    Could it be a camera or computer colorizing deal? Ma Bell was always the muddy Drab Green/Dark Olive Green..

    obvious photoshop saturation and shadow/highlight manipulation. I’m sure whoever edited the pic thought it made it more interesting.

    I remember them being Olive Drab but gloss finished. Like the interior shot showing the inside of the door but not the bright green door handle. I don't remember the traffic cones being yellow like that though, more orange color... ...that shot of the guy standing there is modern, look at the street sign.
