When Andy develops an A/C to replace our heater box I'll need it for those hot days.

And now there’s a ‘67 on Facebook marketplace...but I guess super expensive to land on US soil.

The one claiming to be special order and a "pre series" but is otherwise a 67 in a factory color? The thing is rare enough without exaggerating the pedigree...

This is my first post on this forum as your post title caught my eye, and I'll be interested in hearing how the restoration progresses. It also gives me motivation to go over my '69 as well, as it's seen a lot: wildfire, flood, several girlfriends, several cross country trips, and multiple accidents (all real events, none of which were my fault!!! Except for maybe the girlfriends... ;) ).

Keep us posted on your progress and, as I've had my '69 for the entire past 50 years, I'd be happy to try and help answer any questions.

So just curious why you would pick up another AS when you still have one that still needs to be restored (or at least appears to be based on the picture of the green one).

Because the green one isn't at my house and this one is. Also this one needs quite a bit less than the green one, which has no floors, and was partially (and poorly) disassembled. The green car may be donating to the red car to make a new car, and the green car then turned into a platform for modifications and other stuff I don't normally do, like fender flares.

Please no flares. There's few enough of the early cars.
I'm not saying don't modify. Actually kind of interested to see what you would do there.
Good luck with the builds

I really can’t bring myself to make modifications like that. I talk...and then I don’t do it.

Here is a photo of the reverse light, it’s a shared part with the Alfa duetto. I’m looking into the history of it because it wasn’t common on fiats.

Hmm...I think that looks a little different. Do both of yours have that same lens?
