The 68 (which I had and restored) had rectangular parking lights in the grille and no vent windows. The 69" has 3 "gills" on the side in the rear quarter that look stupid and serve no purpose. Love the 67-68.
Ah ha, thanks! I'll do some research. When I was a little younger, I wanted to rebuild one myself as a project. That'll never happen...so I'll find a fully functional one and buy it. I would like to learn how to work on it myself, though.

The new retro remakes have the "gills" too...they're ugly.
