Oh I missed seeing these pictures, there are lot of stickers on the car windshields, front and rear, if only we had more info on them.

Ok now for the topic. There was a sticker on the air filter on top (where the part no is stamped) as visible in the Jay Lenos millicento. Now all the select's, superselect's and delight's had the same air filters, I am hoping same sticker will hold good for us. A pic of Jay leno's car

Now I found one site which did had some stickers on other fiats (500, 600, 1500 etc.) Lots of stickers but the one for air filter is same as that of Jay Leno car. I could make out the readings on the sticker. I will digitise and put it across, as for now both of my computers dosen't have cad / graphics software installed on them. So we have to wait for 2 weeks or so.

Can you share more pics of this Millecento?

And regarding these decals, theres no way to ascertain if these were fitted to Indian cars - I would think it is unlikely. But never say never.

Yep these many sure would not have been (and these are Fiat 500 decals), but then the reference for the air filter decal can be easily made out.

Agreed the blue air filter stickers came on foreign cars, Im just not sure they would have come locally.

The brake fluid reservoir of the Millecento is the original style, and is present in my car also (but damaged). Here is a neat shot of the unit fitted to Farhan Kidwai's superb car, photo courtesy Prabal.

Here is how the Air Filter decal on the fiat 103 D (select, super select and delight) could look like (I say could ).

The first one a reference from net and the second one in humble Autocad.

Anjan,

Wow thats great, even I too got the dealer's lable along with my car and guess what it says "NAGPUR". Now National Garage in Raipur is still there and have again become dealers of FIAT (Tata Dealership ),

By the way do you know of National Garage in Nagpur (as per google there is one such in gandhi baug)

Thats pretty nostalgic Manish.National Garage, Mount Road, Sadar, Nagpur, were the sole dealers for PAL cars and trucks in Nagpur I guess even before I was born.They sold and serviced Dodge, Plymouth, DeSoto and other Fiat and Chrysler models in Nagpur.So loyal they were to PAL that the relationship went on and on.Even the Fiat Uno bookings were done here and many were delivered during the late 1990's.When PAL sank sometime in 1997-98 (PAL Peugeot,Kalyan and PAL, Kurla)National Garage too got closed. FIAL appointed a new dealer Eros Motors.
Thats how National Garage went into oblivion. The land and building were intact till about six months ago. But the huge property has now been demolished to make way for a huge complex.Foundation digging is on. Wish I had photographed the showroom which was in a dilapidated condition till 6 months ago!There is no other National Garage now in Nagpur belonging to the owners.

Here's a cute one on the inside of my Pennant's left quarterglass, from Auto Chenoy, who were incidentally Standard dealers for Hyderabad & Secunderabad first. This sticker is a service sticker meant for all cars, dating from 1993 from what I can make out.
I doubt if they are still available with them though.

Note: Is it possible to remake these using AUTOCAD etc?
