If you modify it, it loses value. Originality on an older car, to me, means everything. I don't want any performance/aesthetic modifications, improvements (other than common sense ones), or repaints. If you take a brown car and paint it another color, I would pay you less for the car. Worse than that, when I found out it was a repaint, I'd just go find another car.
Brown is yuck - there's a lot of really nice brown MBs out there that I come across, and I pass on every one regardless of condition.
(1) A 1971 380SL? Sure it isn't a 1971 280SL ?
(2) If you want to repaint it, fine. But expect that car to be a hard sell when the time comes.
