Very cool. Looks like you really got a deal on your car. I would be pretty excited over that news. It would almost seem that someone robbed the car of its parts to be sold off or used on another project -which was done a lot because sometimes as the car got a bit "rough", or if the engine was blown, it was not worth fixing as there was no big value in them as there is today. You could make more money parting the car out at times -especially if you had multiple projects going on.
I guess you can choose whatever color you wanted if you so decided, but I would be looking for the original color somewhere on the car to confirm it, and paint it that color.
Enjoy the car as is, and gather your parts over time, if you choose to. At least you know it does have some great options and if you ever had to sell, this would appreciate the value even if you never did anymore than just drive it as is -money in the bank.
