Paint is ok but a few chips and somewhat faded, could be alright with some detailing. How much would it affect the value if I choose to repaint it.

Not really an expert on this but in my opinion not much if you get a quality paint job and keep it the original color. Unless garage kept from day one I'd expect a 40 year old car to have been repainted at least once in it's lifetime. Even if garage kept it will show some signs of wear at 67,000 miles. Chips, dings, some fading. The usual stuff. HTH. -Jim
