Taking a survey: If you bought this car and wanted to change the color, what color, or two-tone color would you paint it? (If you know the year/make/model of the vehicle color you like, please includ that, thanks). Would you keep the vinyl roof, or change that color?

Also, what do you think is a realistic price for the car, with and without a new paint job? Above Added: Sat July 4, 2020, 6:11 am PST
