I'm guessing you'll be keeping the natural patina.

The '67 is bought and paid for, but it won't be picked up till Christmas.

Hey Bruce, it's the real deal... pretty much a plain Jane, a little rust on the driver side floor, but the rockers, cab corners and lower front fenders are in excellent shape, someone stuck a 350/350 in it a long time ago, I gave it a CLR bath to tone down a lot of the outside surface rust, and I also removed the Bardon bumper and I'm planning to replace both bumpers with chrome ones, my mechanic is getting another small block ready for it, hopefully it will be on the road in a few weeks.
