Subject: [CR]Which vintage frames have steep angles?

A friend of mine is becoming more and more interested in vintage bikes and has already several on topic nice irons. On all his bikes he has set the saddle as far forward as possible and is still not really satisfied. He sais he needs a very steep seat tube and a short top tube. He also says that 70s Gios and Ciocc frames have such geometries while other brands like Merckx and De Rosa haven't. Indeed my 1978 Gios has a relatively short top tube, but is this true in general? Were there really specific brands whith short steep geometry? And which (european) brands should he look for?
