I'd say rebuild it! This is a classic car and tough kit to find. I'm not just saying that because I'm getting ready to build this one myself :D . Seriously though, it looks you did a great job once before, why not use this as an opportinity to build it better?

I have a 1/2 finished kit of the same era...I don't even remember what car it was! I had intentions of making custom lettering. I really like the NASCAR's from that time frame! I'll be watching to see how your gonna save this one!
