Interior color? It has to compliment.

Personally, I love Pino on a GT or Giulia, especially with the tan/brown Maremma boartex interior.

See this one - LINK - but with black interior.

It originally had the tan interior in it but since the 69 seats are so hard to find, we have only found someone who has black seats. That and the 69 we have is just a shell so it didnt really come with any of the original interior besides the door panels which were tan.

I have a 69 gtv and I was wondering what color I should paint it. It was originally green but i was thinking of painting it red. What do you guys think? I am happy with any help:)

Whatever you do DON"T paint your car red. Wanting a "red sports car" and doing a repaint is a typical newbie mistake. There are several reasons for this. The only proper way to change to the color of a car is to do a complete strip and repaint. By this I mean you strip the car to a bare shell and paint everything inside and out. You almost never see repaints, especially red ones, this thorough. Further, if you sell a red car with the alternatate original color showning in various places (and if you don't do it right there will be) the price starts dropping.

And finally you won't get much street cred with a I-always-wanted-a-red-sports-car attitude. Just check out the sea of identical red Ferraris at any car show to see what I mean.

I agree with 180out. The point is that Ferraris almost have a moral obligattion of being red. But Alfas have a long list of racing colours and patterns. Wouldn´t you rather apply red, white and green stripes to your green car with a refreshed original tone paint? This original colour of yours is beautiful.

I agree with 180OUT and the others: keep it original. And in your case, the greens look great on our cars, so appreciate what you have. If you feel the need to "improve" or customize, get a 5.0 Mustang or a Honda.

I used the Alfaholics Fast Road Kit C. I wanted to keep unsprung weight to a minimum so I used all the lightweight Alfaholics suspension bits including the aluminum rear T bar. The wheels are 14" with Michelin XAS tires. The new suspension is amazingly compliant and the car handles fantastic!
