I had a 1976 MG Midget that was in the sun for 5 years prior to buying it and I used a very fine grit rubbing/polishing compound and then gave it a good wash and wax. It seemed to work pretty good for that age of vehicle. Nothing will replace a new paint job with clearcoat. However, this is the cheaper way to go. Hope this helps.
