Those headlights look larger than the North American composite headlights of the '87-88 model year. they do not have the plastic trim the goes all the way around the head light, so the lens surface must be larger.

I wonder what it would take to get some of those headlights over here. You guys in Europe get all the good stuff! What kind of carb set up does it have?

I'll take a picture of the headlight when the glass is removed, gimme 5-10 minutes.

I have no idea about the carb, its supposed to be 74hp,
I can send you a pair of headlights, pay for the shipping and thats it.. what about the fenders? and the marking lights(orange).. we have "parked-lights" instead, headlights must be on all the time, even during daylight, I guess u can use euro clear ones with an orange bulb..

we can have white marker lights no problem. Looks like they can go right into the same place as the sealed beam headlight, but we need to have the matching side marker lights to go with the headlights. A matching grill would be nice too.

See what shipping costs to Arlington, WA-98223 USA would cost. IF not too bad I will take them!

Also, I have a friend that works for an airline and we might be able to send it airfreight if you are not too far from an international airport. Now to see how much it would cost to have you send me one of those nice front bumpers too!

Have any extra inclinometers? Those were not on all years Tercel4wd in North America, and everyone wants them for the ones that did not have them.

My project has been camped out for a while now. Still have it. Just haven't had the budget to throw money and time at it. Daily drivers and thinning the herd is more important. Only have 1 road worthy Tercel out of 4 right now. And my garage looks like an A engine series parts yard. Building 6 bolt 4age cores to get to the machine shop.

@Mattel They destroyed the interior. All the windows and headliner got scratched. Door cards scratched and torn. Destroyed the battery tray and dented the hood. Thousands of dollars in dammage for $900 worth of seats and a 4 year old optima battery.

@YakSr5 I have 8 bolt tercel flywheels for sale if you need em
