Suggestions for Original 1973 Z28

I just purchased this 73 Z28 that appears to be all original, it has had one repaint about 6 years ago. The only thing missing under the hood is the smog pump. The engine could use detailing in my opinion. My question is should I pull the engine and paint and detail and replace smog pump or would that harm the value of an all original z28?

If the car is original I would leave it as such. However there is a lot you can do to clean it up if so inclined. Verify if it has had a repaint or not. It is really only a valuable survivor if it has not been repainted. If it has been repainted it might as well be restored in terms of value regarding doing what you are considering.

If it has been painted then you can clean up and paint whatever you like under the hood. The question is how far do you want to go?
