This sentence represented in CG format is the following:

Eles  [ele]  PERS M 3P NOM @SUBJ>

contou  [contar] <fmc> V PS 3S IND VFIN @FMV
uma  [um] <arti> DET F S @>N
velha  [velho] <n>ADJ F S @<SUBJ

Two things worth noting:

1) velha maintained the morphological tag ADJ, but the tag <n> was added to indicate that the adjective is used as a noun, as was explained in C165-6.

2) contou is in fact the finite main verb, and being an speech verb, it requires a direct object, in this case, a clause. Since the subordinating conjunction que is absent, the external function is tagged in the finite main verb of the accusative clause (fizeram). For further details go to C165-5.
