    ? on years

    Ok I found a complete car for parts.But I want to do a five speed swap and the car I found they dont know what year it is.It has no markings left on the door or under the hood.The front bumper
    is missing.So how else can I tell.It is a body shop that has the car.

    I know my spelling sucks and I suck with computers deal with it.

    well if it's a coupe, then it's 88-89.. also check the tail lights..86-87 have the smaller inner tail.. 88-89 have the bigger inner tail. but all u need is the parts.. so it does not matter..

    The guy at the shop said he thought it was a 87 because it had 13" rims.I thought my car came with 13"rims but he said the 88-89 came with 14"rims.

    If its an 88 or 89 it will have front corner lights that are the same as yours. The 86-87 have the huge yellow thing on the corner lights.

    The 88 and 89 LX came with 13" rims. The LX-I and SE-I had 14"

    86-87 corner lights:



    88-89




    Those pics are from the How:to on corner lights.
