You got a good one, and they are lovely cars when everythings works.

Just clean and wax the filler door area unless you actually think it is rust. In that case, it needs some conversion (etching) primer and some new paint.

Valve adjust interval is 15,000 or 30,000 miles. Good thing is that they don't wear much, unless the oiler tube fittings get broken, in which case it is a camshaft rather than valves!
