Fit them fore-aft to the quarters, and up-down and in-out to the rockers; fore-aft and up-down is at the pillar side, in-out is at the door side. Remove the striker bolts first, fit the doors, then install the strikers last to set in-out at the rear of the door and smooth closing effort.

If the door panels are off you can adjust the striker bolt from inside the door with the door closed through an access hole in the door latch .

There's tons of information for you on this subject in Section 6 of the 1969 Body by Fisher Service Manual.
