Sweet.  Mine's a 'vert, Spanish Red, Red Int., White Top.  I'm on the tail end of a 2 1/2 year resto.  I took it all the way down to a rolling shell and have gone through everything.  It's a factory air car, power windows and vents, power seats, reclining passenger's seat.  It's a pretty cool car.  It sat in Nevada since '80 with the top down and it was pretty well sun baked.  The sun was bad on the cosmetics but great on the metal.  The car had/has zero rust.

Mine too except for one odd spot in the Left front fender.  It turns out the fender got loaded up with dust and turned to a very thick mud.  The hole is about the size of my thumb.  The parts car I have has a nearly perfect interior.  That is from the north country

Sound cool.  How far are you going to go with it?  I'm not sure if you've ever taken one of these apart.  If not, let me know if you have any questions about anything as I have removed and replaced virtually everything on my car.  If you need your quarter emblems restored I can do them for you.  I had the plastic inserts made buy a local plastics fabricator.  Here's a shot of an emblem I restored:

I'll have to keep that in mind.
 
I have to get some of my other projects further along

I had a 66 years ago. . .  Same thing.  As you can see, I've been around these things for a while.  I kept that car going to 291,000 miles on a 2 BBL 383.  The body and interior were almost perfect.  But alas, the trans and front end were way beyond my pocket book

Yeah, they can definitely get expensive.  I don't even want to add up the receipts on the 300.  It's worth it though.  In all the years I've gone to car shows and cruises, I've never seen a '65 300 'vert.  At the end, I'll have a cool car that I built from the ground up.

Those look really good, but I was thinking more along the lines of repairing the cut and scuffed vinyl for the not so perfect seatbacks. Also changing the colour from black to white.
[/QUOTE]

You can follow the repair info in the FSM for repairing cuts in vinyl roofs. Choose an area that isn't damaged, wax it and make a grain mold from lightweight body filler. Peel it off and let harden all the way. Then sand the edges of the cut area and fill with this stuff



it looks like mayonaise, but when you heat the stuff it cures into vinyl. Then you reheat it and press your mold into it to create grain. It takes some practice, but it does work. Then you can prime and paint the seat backs with SEM vinyl refinishing products.
