Beautiful find! Great for you and for one more chrome Paramount being loved, enjoyed and ridden into its coming 50th birthday.

I'd say you have a good plan unless you need a lower gear than the 42T NR double will allow. It looks as if the rear freewheel is a 13 or 14T-30T (maybe a 31T or 32T) 5 speed Regina Oro. Suntour made a 34T and 38T sprocket which fits on a Perfect, ProCompe, New Winner, Winner and Winner Pro bodies, which could help if you just run the NR double. The Suntour freewheels can also be found in Ultra 6 speed spacing which helps when you run such a low gear. The Huret Eco Duopar can handle the 38T if you decide to go that low.
Dreaming about riding in NH's summertime!
