The American market cars never came with side indicators. See this Press Photo to confirm.

Being Italian, they were probably designed by the same people, you never know. Heres one from a manual scan for reference.

Yeah, I think so. Theyre usually painted body colour though.

My guess it would be aluminium due to its being light weight and at that era, aluminium was being used a lot for parts and even bodies.
Karl, you're something else man!! Hats off to you!!

the blue fiat with side stickers belongs to a guy called Ashish Poduval, Mumbai. he is a common friend of Salil Pawar.

Off Topic:

can someone tell me how it all started - first thing you did to form the FCCI. i wanted to start a similar club in this part of the country. how did you guys invite the owners (contact numbers, addresses, etc)? i even started a community @ orkut - Fiat Club at Kolkata (Calcutta) - but only four members joined (including 1100D n me). how can i reach out to more people? sorry about going way too off topic. :(

Uh, the ones I've seen are all plain aluminium (or maybe painted silver)...the rims were usually painted cream.
