Default Aluminum skin?

Hi,
What models and years did Blue Bird have an aluminum skin?
M380's and 450's had one piece aluminum roof. I don't think that the structure or skin ever was.

All M-380's have a skin made of alucobond, a "sandwiched" material comprised of two sheets of aluminum with a layer of rubber in between. The roof is a single sheet of aluminum (one piece). Alucobond has been used in architectural applications for years. To my knowledge M-380's are the only busses where this is used as external skin.

Thank you,
Too bad the 450's didn't use it for less weight.
