The consensus here seems to be "build it to make you happy". That being said... 65 fastbacks don't grow on trees. If the car is original, I would hesitate to modify(save necessary safety upgrades!) If it were mine, I'd have fun with a less valuable car. Coupes are readily available in all states of upgrade/repair. I hope the more knowledgeable 65 concourse guys give you solid input here, but my 2 cents is: leave it, preserve it! And PICS

It's just a little rust...
