Welcome to the group. Looks like a pretty clean car. Me I like to keep things original especially the first of the 2ND gen Camaros. They were very special cars in my opinion. You can still hammer the throttle on that car and they will definitely smoke the tires. But as others on the forum will tell you is to build it just the way you want.

I'd get the car streetable - if it's not, look up some body shops in the area and take the car to the shops and talk to the guys. Phone calls are probably not the best way to get any interest in a repaint. Might at least get some leads on who still does this work. Most places these days want to bolt on some parts, spray some paint, cash a big insurance check. Local guy that has painted four of our machines got into towing and storage, makes more money doing that than painting. $35 a day per car for doing nothing. I'd have to buy him a lot of beer to get a repaint these days.
