So, do you paint the fenders gray or the body black? 
My vote’s for gray.

There’s some other non-standard cosmetic stuff, but nothing major I can see.

WOW that's a nice car. Based on these photos I wouldn't touch the paint. However I would remove all the extra reflectors and doo dads from the front bumper. The 38's are my favorite year but they don't come up for sale that often. The details make the car; hubcaps, steering wheel and grille. Gorgeous!!!  It's here on the west coast in Seattle WA.

I like the solid maroon over the black and silver two tone,  even if the shade isn't correct.  Looks like a recast wheel on the maroon one.  Just checked on this one and it's listed as sold,  so the maroon one is definitely a good deal if you use this as a comp,  as long as it's pretty rust free. 


 I showed it to the wife.  but she wasn't crazy about it.  Usually I get her approval for most stuff as often she ends up being an investor,  but she says she wants me to buy something more sporty.    So I guess I have to hold out for a convertible of some sort.

The Craigslist ad on this one has been closed, but the maroon one is closer to stock, besides being a lot cheaper.

For $25K, I’d expect restored and bone-stock. The maroon car is a solid deal.
