    :confused:In the process of doing a complete restoration on this car .Thinking of going from black interior to pearl white will this hurt the value of the car since it is a very original STAGE 1?Any comments or opinions welcomed.
    Thanks to all for your input.

    JMHO, if you are keeping the car, do what you like best. If it's going to market, keep it original.

    If it were paint, I would agree with the rest. Interior isn't cheap to change over, but much easier than paint. I vote Pearl White!

    Do what makes you happy. Stock market is at an all time high. Economy picking up
    Car value ( not good) no return on car market. It will be years before it gets good

    Change it to pearl white by purchasing new panels, seat covers, etc. and store the original pieces.

    I’m glad to see you restoring that car. I followed it on the for sale thread. That will be a truest one of a kind car when you are finished.
