Attached the wrong picture, That pic was of a camera, that which I was trying to fix. Attaching the 3rd pic, I'm wondering about the 4 holes on the stalk, I remember seeing only two screws on a RVM of another car.

That is indeed the mirror that came on our fiats. the big centre hole is for carrying the Electrical wires.

The centre hole is indeed needed to pass the wires through to operate the mirror light. The wires should be covered with and ornametal stalk that should be screwed to the holes surrounding to the central hole. Find attached pics of a original mirror brand new (no I dont own it) The seller was asking 200 Euros for it. But the colour is correct and you should get your mirror painted to match it.

Also find attached body shop manual page for the same.

Hi Manish, it appears that Selects came with Black steering wheels and matching black mirrors, but whether the mirrors with the light continued from the Elegants is a matter of research.

The greyish green colour definitely came in Elegants. Earlier Millecentos possibly had brown units too. Select mirrors were a very dark grey, almost black.

A picture of my car (courtesy Kasli) at the VCCCI jamboree early April for the judging which was a total waste of time because on reaching the destination I was informed that the car was classified as a non-classic and not eligible for any prizes. What a total waste of her time.

That's really unfair on their part! So they still havent done away with their negative delusions on old fiats etc. about those cars being "non-classic"! I thought their stand changed lately, with these cars being allowed to participate in the rallies!

Delusions they are! Infact for other than another BHPI'ans mint condition W115 Mercedes, all the Fiats were listed as non classics even a 1959 Fiat 600, however a 1983 Mercedes and a 90's seven series BMW somehow was listed as classics. It was almost like the non-classics category was created for classic Fiats. But who cares we dont restore our cars for VCCCI do we and the way it's going on the classic car circuit in Mumbai, soon VCCCI rally may just become another event to attend if your free that particular weekend.

Atrocious! Fiats are still not considered as classics! where are they? Fiats may not be a classic till 80s' but now we have moved into 2010 they definately classic category should be amended. I feel VCCCI have to relook and amend thecategory.

From a FIAT lover point of view we dont give a damn to what people think about the car but for us it is definately a wonder and a monument to cherish.

What makes me dizzy is when Mercs' and BMWs' from 80s' and 90s' have got into the classic category, FIATs' were ignored.

Sanjeet the front panel on which the Grill sits looks very different, is it new or was it on the car? Do you have the original rims for the car?
