Make it new again. Patina is for ponces.

find a nice way to display it, and keep it as is, as a work of art like you did this on purpopse

Restore it - as others have said, it's not like it got its patina from some heroic story or anything, it's just been sitting in the bush.

Another restore it. I'm all for preserving original cars, but after a car degrades that far it needs a restoration.

I voted restore it, I am not talking a crazy frame off restoration, I am talking a basic respray and just clean it up a bit.
