In the red area is the steering column and the steering box.  Not too far away is the brake proportioning valve.   Since you have ready access, have you laid it back in place to see if it was meant to be like that?

hello, thank you for the compliments :)
this should be of good memories;)
I'm only 22 years old so I board not had the chance to know these years, but it had to be very good :).

when it was imported into France, they changed the exterior mirror for French standards.
If you recall the original there were two outside mirror? ( left and right ) .
we could adjust them from the inside? (Because I've seen that like this)
thank you

I know you have not asked, but I just wanted to point out a small piece that you want to save.  See the part at the arrow in your picture below. It is a spark plug wire guide that is no longer available today. It should have a narrow hole going top to bottom and that hole is so it slides onto the tall peg that is part of the valve cover bolt.  2 wire guides are hard to find.  3 wire ones are plentiful.  They get brittle with age, so a word of warning to handle gently.

Airconditioning was an option in 1969.  I have seen a few Electras without it.  Mostly convertibles though.  You probably do not have a fan clutch either then.  I think that is easy to find a 5 blade fan and the clutches are still available new.
