RE: good cars to restore

my master has a 1977 630 CS...........4-gears, dark grey, tan leather........

it has 44tkm, original owner that drove it was Buergermeister (mayor) Frankfurt am Main.......

it's only flaw is needing some repainting work on one side, where the clear coat peels off.........

how much would it cost to go over the outside?
