If there's no major rust, this looks like a great car. If it's mostly original, it is very well preserved, but definitely could use a slight cosmetic restoration. Personally I'd drive it as is. A little aging here and there gives it character so long as it's not rusting or falling apart.

I wouldn't do anything to it, I'd keep it as is. If you're asking about what could be done cosmetically, that's a hard question to answer because the pics don't show much in the way of defects. There are a couple things I noticed (staining under the fuel door and a crack in the steering wheel) and it's likely that there are a lot more minor cosmetic issues that can't be seen in the pics because they are so minor. I also think that if the car would be priced a bit higher if there were no imperfections.

The upholstery cloth is definitely NOT original, the pattern is incorrect. ........
