Hey - just do what you want with it, IMO! It's YOUR car!

Anywho.....

The cosmetics alone I think will be the hardest to restore. Looks like you would need a new front spoiler with exposed fogs, new bumper (you have the later, flush headlight washers), rear tail, etc. Possibly a rear wiper I don't know if that was standard in 1975. Also looks like you're missing the ashtray (center, lower part of dash). I don't know if the 1975s had dash vents or not.

Looks like the car (or at least the swapped interior) came with full leather - Nice! Keep that dash out of extended sun exposure. That is an early dash, that I know came on the 1976 cars but unsure about 1975.

If you want MY opinion - I'd drive it, take it to the track, see if you like it. If you want to convert it back, do so, if not, then don't!

I say go on and ENJOY it!
