Does anyone have a complete overview of the decals, stickers and identification plates to be found on an original 2000 GTV ( ym 1973 in my case if that makes a difference)??

Joseph
Here is what was found on a brand new, US market 2000 GTV Alfa between 1972 and 1975:
1- Tune-up/emission data sticker on inner right fender
2- Lubrication sticker under the hood panel, towards the right
3- Spark plug sticker (saying to use 2HL Lodges instead of HL if you want to blast the speed limits without holing pistons :p) underneath #2
4- Fispa air filter sticker on air box
5- Tire pressure sticker inside glove box door
6- Breaking-in recommendations on a sleeve wrapped around the driver's sun visor
7- Paint code sticker inside trunk lid, towards the right on the structure of the lid
8- "Alfa Romeo 2000 ... fuel injection" large display sticker at base of rear windo, towards the outside
9- "This seat must not be occupied when car is driven" sticker in the middle rear backrest (GTV was sold as a 2 seater in USA, not being fitted with rear seat belts)
10- Ate blue fluid sticker on brake booster (yes, these cars were supplied with blue fluid)
11- Marelli sticker on coil
12- DOT approval plate (embossed plastic with serial number and build date) on the driver's side door jamb
13- Metallic model number plate (115.01) riveted to the firewall
14- A/C cars had a green background "aria condizionata" sticker in one of the windows

Some are available as reproductions (see other threads on this site) but I've never seen items 6, 8 or 9 anywhere.

European market cars didn't have items 1, 3, 8, 9 and 12.

The air filter sticker on carburated cars didn't exist, the information was silk-screened in yellow on the air box.

On item 13, the model number for the European 2000 GTV is 105.21 or 105.22 if RHD.

Most stickers from suppliers are for earlier year cars and are not the "correct" ones for the early 70 models.

My '74 GTV had a decal on the gas tank filler door which read:
"Gasoline requirements- Grade no. 2 minimum
(2) (2) (2)
or if octane rated
min. 91 RON "
The part number for this decal is 115.00.80.429.00

Also under the engine hood:
A.R. Recommended Lubricants
105.20.80.400.00
A.R. "Normal 3681-69958"

The Lodge Spark Plug decal number is
105.62.80.413.00

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys. I really appreciate your kind help!

I can buy some good repros locally but do not know whether they are all suitable for my model, could be for earlier models. Any pictures available?

Does anyone know whether the luboil recommendation sticker under the engine hood on a European 73 GTV was of the yellow or black type?

Now, this may be just for U.S. cars but IIRC, black (which I have on mine :()were for the earlier (pre 70) cars and IIRC, I thought Green was the color for the '73. But :eek: there is a good chance I'm not correct. :)

On my 1972 US spec GTV the lube sticker is yellow - p/n 105.12.80.400.01.
It is bilingual (french/english) and refers to AGIP, Esso and Shell oils. The 105.12 part number, AGIP reference and french language lead me to believe it was not specific to the US market, although there must have been variations at least in italian and german for those markets.

I forgot one, the "non aprire a caldo" red sticker on the radiator cap.

Why don't we make a list of what's available and where...:confused:

On my '73 manufactured GTV 2000 RHD 105.22 (Australian delivery), the lube sticker is yellow.

It would be useful to create a central point of information for all this, including photos of original stickers. If we could get some decent high quality scans of original items, I'd consider looking into getting reproductions made of some of the hard to find items.
