Is this a legitimate restoration project or a never ending nightmare?

'70

i think it's still worth saving considering that '70 GTVs pretty rare in the US.

Looks quite good in comparison to a few GTV's that have been on BAT the last few months.

I think you are correct. No 70's in the US.

Isn't that a function of marketing? As in, US spec GTVs built in 68 or 70 were marketed as 69 or 71?

It's a '69 - floor mounted brake/clutch.
The '70 had hanging pedals.

you would tag it as a 71 rather than a 69 but in 71 the gtv was officially imported again as a 1750 mk2

I figure whatever date they recorded it was built to '69 specs. It may well have been built before the doc claims or it could have been built as the doc authenticates in 1970. The factory was not known for meticulous records. I call it a '69 as that is the spec to which it was built. maybe I'm wrong and it is a very unusual car. There are certainly more knowledgeble people than I about this sort of thing but that is my reasoning. I in no way mean to come across as an expert just an owner of 2 '69s.
Thanks.

In Italy, the year 1969 was 14 months long. You gotta problem with that?

There are some 1969 model year cars that were assembled in 1970 and sold as 1969 model year cars. There are also some 1969 model year cars that were titled as 1970 cars.
