I didn´t mean the first 626 but the first GC generation! -There had been a prefacelift and a facelift form the 626 GC. The first GC was from 1982-1985 and the second gen from 1985-1987!
Yeah, on that platform, you are right... your first GC, to us woulda been the 83-85 FWD 626. Pre-facelift woulda been the quad headlight front end. Then in 86-87, we got the single halogen headlight nose.
Also, 82 to us, was the last year for the 626 RWD platform... which ran from 79-82. lol
An interesting thing about the 83-87 626... 83-85 had the same automatic transmission, 86 was a one year transmission, and 87's automatic transmission was used, I think from 87-94(which is said to be an unreliable crapbox). lol
1983-85 GC pre-facelift (I had one EXACTLY like this one... an 85)
