1968 Ford Thunderbird

My dad and I are currently looking into purcahsing a 1968 Ford Thunderbird from a local man that is no longer able to leep up the car. Well, the bad first:

It has sit for four years, some rust but not TOO much, needs new vinyl top, not sure if it runs but I doubt it, needs new tires, battery, etc., ripped driver seat, poorly painted the unoriginal red, window motors don't work

The good:
decent interior condition, no rust throughs that are visible, Thunderjet engine, good trunk condition, body appears in good quality, no window problems, not as intensive as a resto as our 69 Chevy, it's a Thunderbird

Can anyone give me a little bit of a run-through of how to sandblast and prep the car to be repainted? Also, does anyone know what the original yellow color on the '68 T'birds looked like? Yellow was the original color. I'll post some pics.
1969 Chevrolet C10
1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
1988 Cadillac DeVille
1993 Jeep Cherokee
