Found a Carabella today

I found this one yesterday. The guy listed "Bikes for sale" and I could see that Maxy crankset in a pile of bikes. Figured there had to be something decent, it turned out to be this: Made in Mexico sticker. Looks just a Windsor Pro. Suntour forged dropouts. The nervex-clone lugs caught my eye. I'm guessing gaspipe, but it looks like "nice" gaspipe. I've got it stripped and the frame is getting the navel jelly treatment for the rust right now. I thought it would take the paint off too, but it hasn't made much of a dent in it.

Rebuild plan is a 700c conversion with a 600 gruppo I've been saving. Any ideas for color?
