    The 3rd Gen Accord Coupes were made starting 1988-1989, They also hold alot of history as they were the first Japanese Car to be built in america and exported to Japan, The JDM Accord Coupe was no diffirent from the american one except for the Front Corners and a couple Honda of America Badges, It was even exported to Japan RHD.

    So now that we've learned our little bit of history, Yes Only Coupe Tails will fit on a coupe, The Tails have the black plastic on them where a Sedan has Metal.

    Ok now what fits your car with no mods?

    Well being a 1987, Any 1986-1987 USDM Accord Sedan Tails
    Any 1985-1986 JDM/EDM Sedan/Saloon Tail Lights From a Accord

    Ok what fits your car with Minor Mods? Well if you get a trunk lid from a 1988-89 Sedan then you can use the 1988-1989 Accord Sedan Tail Lights

    Ok What About JDM Vigor? Well as I've posted They come in 2 Flavors, theres your 1985-1986 and then theres your 1987-1989 (Facelift)

    With your Current Trunk Lid you can fit 1985-1986 JDM Vigor Lights, If you can get someone to send you the Plate Holder, or if you do something Custom for the plate, your Set everything bolts into place

    If you install a 1988-89 Accord Trunk, then you can use the Lights that were offered on the 1987-89 JDM Vigor, It still requires you having to mount the plate somewhere else, but the 1988-89 USDM Accord Tail lights are the same as the 87-89 JDM Accord Tail Lights, so all you need is the Vigor Trunk Part to convert.

    Ok now Pics of Each thing!

    1986-1987 USDM Accord Sedan:

    1988-1989 USDM Accord Sedan:

    1985-1986 JDM/EDM Accord Sedan:

    1985-1986 JDM Vigor:

    1987-1989 JDM Vigor:

    As Far as All these Lincoln Terms, I have no Idea, I've never been into them lol

    I Hope this helps you

    just remember if you want the vigor center, you will have to weld in a bit of metal where the accord has the dip thing under the number plate area

    THANKS GUYS
    now I'm on the hunt,I really like the vigor tail setup but if I cant find the center panel I'll just smooth it and move the Backup lamps to the bumper.
    I really like the vigor lights with the turn in the ends,just cause it isnt like the us version,or any clears.but now I have alot more keywords.lol

    Quite a unique project you have!

    I think for the engine I would go one of two ways. Either a turbo A20 or a turbo B18. The turbo will give you enough torque to move all that weight, and being 4-cyls they will easily fit without serious chopping. Obviously the A20 would be more period correct (being original) but the B18 would have more aftermarket support. The B18 will also have more support in terms of transmission mods. With that much weight you will need a tough transmission. Clutchnet makes some tough clutches for either engine so you might consider them.

    For that projest I would go with a sroked B20B or Z. They will make more uesable torque ata much lower rpm to all that weight. The turbo is a great thing but a well built stroker motor will out preform a turbo with way less service and tuning.

    finally got around to tinkering with the carb. the float level was too high. and it was overfilling the bowl. got it set better. prob needs more tweaking.

    I got a gig with bobspropshop.com so Im really focusing on my prop cars(BTTF delorean,KITT,and ECTO-1.) that we are building at the shop.

    anyone interested in the honda limo? I cut the price in half $2500.00
    had 2 offers last time for 25/3000.
    is that a fair price? I think I was a little high before. but really didnt want to part with it.(its my favorite car to drive)
    but I think it needs a better home.someone on here would take good care of it.
