What a beautiful car
Is that still the original paint?

I think you should keep it as original as possible!

Thanks and Yea thats the original paint, although I wonder if they painted it all at once when new or if they painted it in pieces, because I do notice some color variation on some panels. I don't see any sign of any sort of repaint though which makes me tend to think its simply factory mis match. I plan to basically keep it looking exactly as it is now inside and out, just swap my 351cj/4spd and other factory performance goodies onto it.
