Here are two of the 'single headlight' grills that I've got. I think I've got another one kicking around somewhere...

Other variations of the carina lights look like this:

I'm very pleased with these TA60 sedans/coupes (especially coupes), and I came up with several questions. Does it has LSD or what brakes are in front/rear? Did TA60 carinas is very different from AE86 in technical area? Is the 2T-G engine very bad Confused ?

My TA60 has an open diff (S-class) and LSD on the TA60 was not an option as far as I know. All TA60s have disc front, drum rear.
I think a LSD can easialy be swapped from some Celica models, same axle and same diff size. Also swapping the axle and drivetrain from an AA63 or any other model XA6X Celica should be easy: same wheelbasis. Only the Celica Supra should be a problem since it has a different wheelbasis. Tongue

From what I read and heard the 2T-G engine is not bad at all but it has a bit less power and is less rev-happy than the 4AGE. I'd rather have a 2T-G in my TA60 than the 2T I currently have. Big Grin

The TA60 carina isn't that different than the AE86, but it is much closer to the Celica than to the Corolla, so it isn't entirely a 4 door hachi. Tongue

2TG engine is meh..but a 3T-GTE with a huge turbo hanging from the side. Puerto Rican dragracing style.

A pedal to steer the rear

The *A60 models dont come with too much flash stuff, but do have a T40 or T50 box, and a T series rear. And hydraulic clutch too.
Mine was an AA60 with 3AU, which means it's stupidly easy to swap a 4AGE into! But I had something else in mind. Tongue

The *A63 models are the good ones, had 10" vented discs at the front, solid disks at the rear (and internal drum for handbrake Hurray! ) And sometimes came with F series LSD rear, and W50 or W55 gearbox. And 4AGE, 3TGTE, or one or two other things.

The main reason I bought a carina over anything else, is that they're so damn easy to upgrade!

For example, fitting my engine. I used an ST141 corona crossmember and engine mounts, and blammo, I've got a 3SGE in the car.

Fitting the 6 speed box?
I removed the electric speedo drive, used one from a W57, and the original speedo cable plugged straight into that. And fit perfectly in the trans tunnel.

And the most jammyest part of all... The standard T40 clutch slave cylinder fits *perfectly* to the altezza box! Huh

Or getting a stronger LSD rear end?
I got an F series live axle from an MA45 celica, and it just so happens that altezza LSDs fit right in, and I've got a cusco 2 way for it. Evil

My entire project has gone like that so far, lol!
All my freinds think I'm a jammy bastard, but I told them.... Doing your homework pays off!

I think the Carina front on a Celica would look great (i think Toyota did it themselves, with the Corona Big Grin), not too sure about the other way around tho Big Grin

You probably mean this one:

I found it here:

But that is a corona rear-end and a celica front end. Wink

It resembles the Carina, but it is actually not the carina.
