Paint is the star of this car. One repaint, 1974 Regatta Blue around 18 years ago. In 2000 the car was professionally appraised and stated the paint is concours level. Today it’s not 100 point perfect but in the high 90’s. I looked into getting some airbrush touchups mostly on edges and bumpers. 3 estimates all came in at $500 or less to take care of. All the awards listed above were with the paints minor defects. Many people’s remarks are how beautiful this car is.
