Yeah it looks like the original colour of that Town Ace was beige and painted in blue. The unique part of the chassis number appears to have been masked during painting as Twin Turbo said. 

The chassis number should also be printed on the info sticker in the passenger side door jamb under "FRAME NO". You can check the original paint code from there as well.

Is there any particular reason for this? Why not just paint a thing layer over it

No idea if there is a legal requirement...but I have come across several painters (including my guy) who masks the code before paint. When asked why my guy said it is to indicate that there has been a color change and that at times it is easier to get the book change done and also stated that sometimes when doing a color change properly several layers of primer, paint etc..needs to be put on (I believe sometimes its a matter of lazness of the painter as well) which results in the numbers getting filled up and being unclear. Therefore the paint needs to be cut which in turn looks like someone has been messing around with the chassis number.

If you have any doubts, better get it checked by an expert (like valuation company).To me it looks like genuine and as Twin Turbo said its a repainted work.

COLOUR CODE 058

A quick Google search says 058 is white or warm white. It probably darkened in the engine bay due to dirt and grime and looks like beige. So the colour shown through the blue on the chassis number is the original colour of the vehicle.

I'm not sure to be honest. But the points stated by iRage above makes a lot of sense.
