I've tried looking through numerous threads and pics online, but I can't find a Paramount with these decals.
So can anyone tell me which year and/or model they would be for?
Thanks!

Sorry to pile on, but they look Russian to me.



I think you'll have a real answer soon enough though, just makin' a little hay while the sun is shining.

They are Paramount , one year, part year, transition year, something year, don't remember what year but I've seen em before.

Hopefully @T-Mar or @Metacortex will come along and straighten us out.

They're THESE:



...Dunno what that is, but it's sexy as hell.

EDIT: A little reverse-exploration from where I found the photo took me to ClassicRendezvous, where I discovered this is the webmaster's P-14 #E7628 . Serial number puts it at '76, so good call @ed4406!

Awesome, thank you very much!
Here's another pic I found through your link Farenheit531. Thank you! I'm not very good at navigating the CR website.

I actually found it with a google image search; it was on pinterest, of all places, but the poster there was kind enough to link to the original. And glad to help.
