Ever tried finishing the wood on '76?

I have a '76 Sovereign with the vinyl wallcovering, which is peeling off in places. Underneath is a rough, but eye-pleasing wood. Has anyone tried removing the vinyl wallcovering, and then sanding and finishing the wood underneath?

I read in a post where someone painted three coats of Bull's Eye Shellac on it and it came out really nice. I'm planning on trying it.

Those luan panels come out in about two minutes each. Why not use them as patterns and replace them with some nice yellow birch or red oak panels and finish them? Or maybe cherry or some nice American walnut? Same amount of work to finish and the results will be a lot different.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
