Keep up the great work on your car! These cars bring back lots of memories. My parents had a 2-door 1969 Electra when I was young. We traveled everywhere in that car.

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.
