Post Clear coat on '63?

Did all trailer come with a clear coat ? I dont know where to start. Mine has some shiny spots some dull, a mess around the furnance, some dings. its a little of everything. Im OCD so I want a perfect finish. Do I start with less and go up? Its so hot here right now i'm afraid the sun will ruin anything I try.

Clearcoat was optional prior to 1964.

It last only 5 to 6 years.

So if it's a 64, that paint has been dead 40 years ago, at least.

I understand clearcoat was an option in '63....

Mine has it but I would question if it's the original.
