Incidentally, I saw a modern avatar of the same part on an Innova. IMO, it looks even uglier than the classic part !

Attachment 931298



Any idea how these window panels are attached to the car?
Are they a permanent fitment (screws, nuts, bolts etc) or a temporary snap-on fitment? Any close-up pics?
nice, thanks for the reference
though i'm only worried about the rod falling off due to engine vibrations,\

the window panel i reckon is a temp fitment
i remember seeing a video whr jay leno explains about it on his millecento

Guys this thread is to make people aware of parts that you might have to offer for sale exchange or just know of a shop where something might be available. Lengthy discussions not related to the above can continue on one of the innumerable Millecento threads.

Visit NGK and find NGK India's contact details therein. See if they can help you locally. Or, visit the imported cars' spare parts shops in Pallika, Khan Mkt, CP. Either ways, keep the part number handy, which I'm sure I needn't tell you, but mentioning it nevertheless!

The V8 of the 72 Lesabre can easily take Bosch single tip platinum 4236 Heat range reading WR9FP

These are available anywhere, If you insist on NGK, then you need to shop them online.

I live in Jaipur . I have checked with the NGK dealer and they say this particular one they dont have it and they will have to get it specially ordered and import it . The dealer will charge me a lot . It was coming out to be very expensive . Its better if there is any performance modders who get it at a better price cause they do bulk orders .

Thanks for the site . It was perfect and the pricing was also good . But they dont do internationally shipping .

You should get it from Germany, original quality, replicas if available anymore will again fade very fast.

It would have been really useful if you could mention the tyre sizes and the price range so, that only those who need the specific tyre need trouble you.
