Beautiful car. Practice the driving techniques, especially P&G, in the list of 100 above, and you'll see more that 50mpg easily, especially when the weather warms-up. [EDIT: Also, you could consider mods first that don't much alter the appearance or function of the car, if you like its clean stock look, such as an undertray/bellypan or inflated tires, removed power steering, unplugging the A/C relay for winter, a shifter-mounter injector kill switch...]
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
