Very blessed to have them.  Yes, the 65 is original and has never been restored with original paint and no rust.  Original drive train, brake lines (except the front rubber, but I have them), gas line, sending unit, tank, engine pieces etc... it is an incredible time piece.  I also love to drive it. 

It is funny I get asked at every show, "are you going to restore it?", NO WAY I tell them.  It has lived this way for 55 years it would be a crime to do that.  There can't be many original paint/ born with drive train cars out there.

Yes, they are drivers.  The white one has won Bronze at a SAAC event and has been restored but it is driven.  I wouldn't own one I couldn't drive  :)

+1 It's great that preservation of original cars is now gaining more recognition.
