Alfa 1969 Period Correct Pit Crew Jumpsuit Color

Hey Guys,

I'm having some pit crew jumpsuits/coveralls made for use in the shop. What color should they be? Was there an "official" team color that was used in 1969 (or close to that year). Was there an official Alfa factory race team at that time? I have a 1969 GTV, so would nice to have jumpsuits that were period correct!

The closest I could find was from the 1970 Sebring 24 hour race:

Thanks!

Jump Suits: AutoDelta

Gentlemen: I do have two of the original 'tuttas' that I wore when associated with AutoDelta in Settimo Milanese in the early 1970s and would consider an offer from a museum or private individual for one of them. Expensive and Unobtainium to say the least. Same is pictured...in fact I was there but not in that particular photograph.

Regards.

Wow Bob that's impressive. I don't think I'd want an original, way to precious for what I have in mind. I was just curious to the color I should get for my workshop overalls. Sounds like the blue pictured is somewhat accurate for an Alfa team mechanic color.
