Hi

That car is a very good choice.

Looks the part.

Dont go too far with modifying it.

One thing i can suggest is a full stainless steel exhaust in the original design not a loud sporty version.

Fill the sills etc with waxoyl and washout the wheel arches and paint in black hammerite/waxoyl rust preserver.

Make sure you get any welding done before you use the waxoyl as it will catch fire.
