Smile clear coat

Hi everyone,
I am a newbie and have just bought a 17' Caravel. I've had two Class B motorhomes and have decided to pull from now on. I'm working on the inside, but have been wondering about polishing. Mine is a 1966 and no work has been done to it, so do I assume that there is a clear coat that must be removed before polishing begins and how do I tell? Thanks

I see this is almost a year old thread but here i go. I also have a 66 caravel and the prior owner had the clear stripped off and polished before i got it. The clear cracks and hazes with age and during the polishing if the clear is still there you won't get a black film on you polishing cloth. If that is the case you will need to strip it off. Good luck.
