I use a paint stripper called Jasco. With strong chemical, you need to be careful and mask off what you don't want to get messed up. When the old paint is softened, you can wire brush into the grain and get it looking normal. Don't use a grinder or sandpaper (except on heavy rust). For rust, try POR-15 or any other anti-rust product. When done, a light primer coat then a final coat.

That wrinkled camera finish is hard to get back, but Jim's advice to not use sand paper is good advice.  If it's already smooth then you are SOL.

That's the spot where you hang your elbow out the window while cruising.  That's just a badge of honor these old dinocaurs carry.

It's just a part of owning a classic.  If you want a new car, go buy one.

The vinyl dye will stick to vinyl better than oil based paint.  Here is a pic of mine on my 65 coupe that was painted about 10 years ago.

I think you'll be fine using a chemical stripper.
Here's a little tip for "restoring" the original grain, if it's gone: Use a high-build slow drying primer/surfacer, When it is dry enough to finger print, without getting primer on your finger, press a piece of vinyl or leather onto the primed area. The grain will transfer to the primer. It won't be exact, but it works.
