That's very good news. Actually, the car and I are the same age and I didn't start building until 1970 or so. At that age I didn't even know how they got to the store. :) But if the manufacturers had access to the plans, then I should have no troubles.
I'm currently googling lots of reference pictures and I think I'll do it in Champagne gold.
My main reason is I've actually in all my years never built a rep stock or a convertible. I thought it would be a chance for me to hone my skills detailing interiors.
P.S. I just measured the chassis and the wheelbase is 129mm. The real car is 129inches. That's going to make measurements very easy. :)
