Im new to posting on this site but have been reading on it since 2014.
I have a 1968 that I am in the process of a frame off restore... 5.0 efi 4speed conversion im down to body work and its going really slow as I am doing all the work myself.

I came across and bought a 1967 uncut baby blue and white mostly stock bronco. The only rust is just some surface rust on the floor pans on the inside under the carpet. It also is very straight except on the driver side behind the rear tire the quarter panel its roled up underneath.
I think it has only been repainted which was the original color once. Inthe 80's?
My question is what should I do or not do the keep the value as high as possible without loosing the original factor?

1. Should I fix the quarter panel damage or leave it?
2. Should I sand the floor panels and apply something to keep it from rusting more?

Im nervous to change anything. .. any thoughts?

If it has already been painted once, I would not worry about what you do to correct the wrong.
The original factor is already gone.
Now I would say if you want to keep the vintage factor do as little as possible. You donít want to start another frame off!
As far as the floors, I would just sand /wire wheel them and get them with a rust product like rust bullet ect. And smother the rust and slow it down. Can you pull the dent/rolled fender? Maybe have it done and painted, color matched?

Ok thanks for the quick response. Thats kinda what I thought. The paint job is really good and u really have to look for something In Order to tell it was repainted. I can probably get the quarter panel pulled out but it will need color matched. The floors are a easy fix I just wasn't sure in the bronco world if it would take away from something. ..

X2^^^^^

Especially the jealousy part.

Neat truck, maybe a body guy could roll that down and only paint from the character line down in his blend. Or hell, paint ranger stripes on it if you canít get the blend right.

Nice rig. Repairing and maintaining should not effect originality or value. Welcome to the forum.

One of my favorite bumper stickers:"If you don't stop tailgating me I'll whip a booger on your windshield" There's room for all God's creatures-On my plate, right next to the mashed potatoes and gravy.
