1977 Can Am restore or modify?

Just bought a Can Am with 39,000 original miles but it has a non original stock looking 71 455 engine. would i hurt the value by modifying or leaving it stock? It already has a 041 cam and Ram Air manifolds.

You no longer have the original engine so making more mods will not effect the value. You are sure about the 041 cam? They are not exactly friendly to stock automatics and require a decent rear end gear to perform.

You are trying to remove the door as a complete assembly?
Doesnt the hinge assembly bolt to the body and door?
