Sounds like an absolutely wonderful plan. Keep us up to speed on your car.

My fuel gauge didn't work either. I had to fix the float in the gas tank. There's a nice easy access to it in the trunk, watch out for the retainer ring it can be a pain. I had to pull my tank because the ring was stuck. I think I paid $50 to get my generator rebuilt and the same place did the voltage regulator and starter.

If you do take it to a car show I guarantee that folks will be checking it out. Let's see some pics!

Nice! That's the same color mine used to be.

Think it has been repainted or touched up many years ago. Found some overspray on one side window but 100% sure it is the original color.
Been in almost every spot on the car and and everthing in the same color.

What color is the trunk painted? Are the fender-wells (inside the trunk) painted the same color as the body is or are they painted steel-grey? The steel-grey color is the original color.

It's a weird color, like a steel gray with a little green in it.

That's the stock color I'm pretty sure. There were very very few (if any) that ever came from the factory with the trunk painted body color.
