Bought a van that's been resprayed - why?

I have bought a white second hand Ford Connect - however the new MOT provided by the dealer states blue, and on inspection it has obviously been resprayed. It has only done 30K so I am worried as to why it would have needed respray. Presume white sells better but would that cover the difference?

It was possibly to do with it being in the right company livery.
