If you are building the car for yourself, then which would you prefer?

If you are doing it to sell after a year or so, there will be plenty of people that would like it to be original, equally there would be plenty of people in the market for a well converted car. Either way, don't expect to get back anywhere near the amount of money you'll put into it.
