I just purchased a C3 '78 with light beige/mahogany brown. The exterior is in great condition but I will be considering painting in the near future. I'd love to change the color but I'm concerned that it will be a affect resale value in the future. Please advise.

Vette(s): 1973 Orange Metallic Coupe (orig owner), L82, 4 spd (WR), PS, (A/C & PW (I installed from wrecked 73)), leather, AM/FM Stereo, ran with '65 FI unit earlier & will again some day.
Not sure how to answer a survey that asks a question. If your car is all original, numbers matching, then changing the color will affect the resale somewhat. But unless it is a very unique car, probably won't reduce it much. If you plan to keep it and drive it and enjoy it, I'd say paint it a color you like.
