Which tail lights does the GT Hatchback have?

Narrow body, or wide body tail lights?

I'm guessing wide body right? Like a narrow GT-Four?

You know that the GT is the narrow-body. IIRC, the tail lamps assys are all interchangeable. If you take a look at the corners of your tails, the body flares around the assembly. I'm almost positive its not the other way around.

May I ask why you're asking?

^wait what?

The Celica ST and GT coupe have different tail lights than the GT-S and Alltrac. They are not interchangeable.

The more obscure Celica GT hatch, I believe, has the traditional "wide body" tail lights.


I'm thinking of picking up a 92 GT hatch. There's several parts I could salvage for my 93's.

I can't find a good pic of the GT hatch, but I assume it's the same as the narrow body GT-Four.

All of the 90-93 Hatchback tail lights are interchangeable. Narrow or wide is the same fit, the flare happens after the light mount.

All of the 90-93 Coupe tail lights are interchangeable.

I can't remember for sure but I seem to recall something about the convertible ones being different also, but I have no experience with those.

Convertibles are the same as the coupes, only difference being between 90/91 and 92/93 the mounting method is reversed. In 90/91 there were clips on the lights, and bars on the car, 92/93 it reversed, same parts though.

lol :)

I was saying that from the topic, the GT tails are the same as the alltrac's.

I didn't even think about the coupes or verts...

Sorry for being so unclear Greg.
