Looking for fenders 87-88 no rust

Post by Wavesculptor2 » Wed Jun 10, 2020 8:21 pm

Looking for good fenders for paint and restore. The current ones on the car have rust. I have an 88 tercel wagon, my understanding is only 87 or 88 fenders will work. Is this true?

Thanks
Adam

I think the fenders from any wagon -- 83-88, both 2wd and 4wd -- will work. The grill and headlights are different for 83-86 but I believe the headlights have the same mounting points on the fenders.

Beware the 87/88 crossover though. 87 was when Toyota started making the third generation of Tercel which are completely different from our wagons, and no parts are interchangeable between them.

I have the fenders from an '83 Tercel hatchback on my '84 wagon, so the fenders are the same between the hatchbacks and wagons.

The antennae mounts on different sides. 83-84 on the left, and later years on the right, if I remember correctly.
