Newby Exterior Questions 25' 1976 Expertise Needed

We just bought a 25' 76 Airstream that we are living in and I am currently working out of as well, doing interior type decorating and such. We are slowly restoring while living in it and I actually have some exterior questions.
I'm asking on behalf of my fiancÚ who is not very internet saavy... I am handling the interior stuff myself obviously

We are both excited to have made this change in our lives and are very ready to live the "Airstream Way" as they say...

I have two questions:

1. The exterior is painted over with a grey type protective paint (according to the man who sold us the Airstream) He thought was a protective cover type paint to protect the aluminum during long term storage. Is anyone familiar with this coating? And... if so what will it entail to get it off and shinned up when we are ready to do that. (I can send a pic if necessary)

2. The original Awning is actually still in pretty perfect condition (surprisingly)
and it is Red White and Blue (at least I think its the original) Could this type awning be linked to it being a "76" As in Spirit of 76? (That's what we named her too)
Is there such a thing, model etc. or did I just make up something real cool? LOL

Any advise and expertise much appreciated.
