Thanks for the comments.  I really don't know for sure if the paint is original.  The previous owner had purchased the car from an estate in Tucson, AZ and didn't know the complete history.  If it had been repainted, the paint job was very detailed because I can't find any of the usual repaint clues (overspray or paint seams).  The paint is the Ford enamel as it leaves a slight trace on the wax applicator when I polish it (usually once a year or so).

I have been working on the side back glass. I had converted the roll-ups to the stationary windows ala business coupe. This has been a total exercise in frustration trying to get the seals to work correctly. What I should have done when I had the glass made was gone to 3/8 thick. The seals are just made wrong...too wide of a glass channel...as far as I'm concerned. Other guys in the past have had the same problem. I cannot get the inside to conform to the glass even after adding a rubber glass edging for shower doors I had picked up from a glass shop. Anyway, I got them put in as best I could yesterday, with messy butyl caulking. They look ok from the outside. I'm going to move on and leave them as is for now, and add them to my list of things to redo after the car is complete. In the future, I will either convert it back to rollups or have 3/8 thick tempered glass made.
