The Green 69 is in pretty fair shape. I had the whole car painted when I got it. When adjusting the parking brake in my driveway from Hades, it got away and crunched the rear left corner. It had damage when I first got it. Got that fixed. So the body is good. I had the seats recovered, tried to find original tricot material in the same color but was unable to. Had an age appropriate cloth pattern installed. I don't like vinyl. The engine is stock, It runs 165 R15 tires, I did install a radio, but couldn't find the proper under dash pod like the red 69 has. The only pods I could find were for 99's from later years. The 6X9 speakers in the shelf behind the rear seat were there when I got the car. Freewheel works. Just adjusted the point gap and set timing. I believe it has an issue with the vacuum unit on the distributor. Vacuum advance works, but vacuum retard (I'm assuming it works similar to an Alfa GTV I use to have) doesn't hold vacuum. So two diaphragms I'm guessing. Had the brake vacuum power unit rebuilt shortly after I got the car. Starts and drives beautifully. Will replace the choke cable when the new one gets here. The existing unit isn't original and doesn't have a switch for the light in the gauge pod.
That's about it.
