Here's my wagon. Original Blue. Front end will change, got into a little fender bender but otherwise it'll stay original paint for a while.

Mostly original paint! I'm gonna try a light wet sand/buff job to see if I can save it. The trunk lid is "baked" from the California sun, but I've got a spare orange lid that isn't quite as straight, but the paint is much better. The plan is to "black out" the hood and tops of the front fenders (1969 Opel Kadett Rally style!), so the different color hood at this point doesn't matter!

I have an exact same set of wheels like on your 510, in 15". First time I have seen them on a 510.
Yours are nicely polished, mine are a bit dull now.

I guess my 71 stocker fits into this thread. It's not all original paint. The front fenders have been changed, and there is a bit of a bad "fading" paint touch up on the drivers side front corner of the hood. But I can't find any evidence that any other part of the car has been painted in its life.
