Does changing the color change the value?

I am in the process of buying a 1971 LT1 Corvette. The car is completely original EXCEPT it was repainted buy the first of two owners. It began life as Orange, and the first owner decided to have it painted yellow. How badly does this color change hurt the value of the car? It is highly optioned, and only has 13,850 miles on it, (all very well documented by the current owner).

He is asking $46,000 for the 1971 LT1 Convertible.
Your help please?
Thank you,
Trace
