A 1974 Impala just fell into my lap. I'm in love.

All original body, paint, seats, and engine. V8, automatic transmission.

It's going to need a repaint, but I'm holding off for warmer weather. It spent the first half of it's life in a garage, so the paint to rust ratio is not too bad, but it looks very dull. I'm going to get it some good wax tonight. You can tell just by looking at it that it yearns to be shiny.

It looks like my car is the oldest one here so far (hopefully that's okay?).. but I was wondering if any of you had any experience or with older models? I'm going to need to replace a window and replace/tweak a few other odds and sods, and I'm looking for input.
This isn't my first classic vehicle, but the work I've done previously has not extended past sanding and primering.

i don't have any experience with older bars, but i would recommend using a claybar on the paint before waxing it to pull up all the contaminants and such that washing will not get off of it.
