Bought these some time ago as is.  Chassis is blue on both as is the glass?

So that is where those crazy side pipes in my parts box come from! Since I am not much of a Corvette guy I've never had any original early third gen Vette models.

Got this 1964 Corvette a couple of months ago and still trying to decide whether to restore it or keep it as a period piece with all the custom pieces glued on.

I'd keep that as a period piece. You'll probably find if you pry off those exhausts that the fender vents and/or rocker trim will be glue-roached. 

If it were mine, I'd see if that luggage rack could be pried off without glue marks; if so, I'd polish the white plastic. The other thing I'd do is remove those triple taillights from the outside and install them from inside the body as they should be. The body under them might be glue-roached, too. Easy enough fix but it will necessitate painting, not polishing, the body. (Does it have exhaust pipes at the rear in addition to the side pipes? Those would have to go as well.) 

That's a cool project car.

I'd keep the Corvette as-is too!  It is a cool period piece.

Regarding the tail lights, several kits of that era showed installing the lights on the outside as the custom version.  I'd check the instruction sheet for this model. It may be period correct!
