RobertThe green color showed up in the US with the '69 injection 1750, but there was not a '68 model due to the new emission rules that the 1600 Weber cars could not meet. The Europeans got a 68 version with the earlier 1300 or 1600 engines. Possible late 68 in the Pina Farina production (where the built and painted the bodies) when the 69's were starting?
Tell me how you ended up setting up your suspension. My alfa had the smaller ATE's, and I realized later smaller front rotors. I am installing the 1969 on front suspension except for the 2 bolt versus 4 bolt inner portion of the lower triangle. Daron Walker pointed this out but I elected not to throw more money at the lower crossmember as he does for some of his clients (I don't think those two bolts will break, but I'm not an engineer). I thought to myself as he was offering this, "whoa more money(!)," and why should I worry about it when GTA's came with 2-bolts early on and Spinaci has reinforcement welded over where the body suspension was cracked and repaired.
It almost says there were green 68's - especially since I've seen a few - which is what I meant. I didn't know pro or con about the 1750 engine choice, but I do know thasta 68's were made with 1600 and 1300 engines ("Juniors") Always felt this green was one of the most unique colors for Duettos.....your post reads as if the 1968 spider veloce (roundtail) in europe (and elswhere) didn't get green paint or a 1750 engine....
