The door latch that spins is held in place by two screws. One on top and one on the bottom. Take the top screw out.

Body shops are in business to paint cars. It's much more difficult to match metallic paints than a non-metallic paint like your turquoise. I wouldn't stress over it. Any color can be matched with the...

Put the head back on and redo the compression test. If the cylinder is still dead pour some oil down the plug hole and redo the test. If compression starts to build then you have bad rings.

If you can't figure it out let me know and I'll dig my '66 manual out from the garage. I think you have to remove the motor first before the vent window will come out.

Unless you plan on painting the car yourself why are you buying paint? If you are taking it to a body shop to do the metal work it's their job to match the paint, not yours.
