ok... here in New Zealand we have a very large variety of mk3 bodies but here is how you can tell the differences on them regardless of what year the registration ticket says it is
(just as a sidenote these body differences may not apply to northern hemisphere, most of what is shown here is what japan sent to the southern hemisphere )

86 supra bodies....

aerial in back windscreen

body moulding looks like this on jdm models (usa used 87 moulding from 86-88)


windscreen washer jets are small stubby ones like this



86's also have a parklight switch whereas in nz in 87 they got changed for a coin slot (in the usa i believe they still have parklight switches)

86 supras are also narrow body (flat sides, guards aren't flared out etc)
here's a pic of a narrow body & widebody... you can see the yellow one has wider front guards than the white one


also as shown above... the white supra is an 86 but had the 89 bumper and spoiler conversion done... so 86-88 = yellow bumper, 89-92 = white bumper (if you look at the turn signals you will notice that they are exactly the same as the yellow ones.. 86-88 turn signals)

taillights look like this



factory 86 spoiler shown above

87 bodies...

aerial in back windscreen

87 moulding is exclusive, it is not on any other year... you will never mistake an 87 unless someone went through the trouble of changing it all (which i doubt someone would go through the trouble with)
87 moulding comes in 3 colours... burgundy, gray & blue

87 moulding pic


windscreen washer jets change for 89 to longer nice looking ones



as shown previous... widebody & narrowbody
all 87 supras are widebody from the factory
the yellow one is an 87



taillights and spoiler are still the same as 86



87's also came with seatbelt holders which the 86's didn't come with (in the USA only 89+ got seatbelt holders)


87's had a coin slot in replacement of the parklight switch (in nz, not sure of other countries, USA 87's did not come with coin slots factory)


88 bodies...

aerial in back windscreen
back to narrow body style
still retains coin slot
no seat belt holders in 88's
still have the newer style windscreen washer jets
still have 86 style taillights and spoiler
back to 86 style moulding

89-92 bodies...

aerial changes to an automatic one in the right rear quarter in spoiler
taillight style also changes
spoiler changes to a new 3 piece with spoiler light



body moulding changed


windscreen washer jets are still the long sleek nice ones
all are widebody (but..... generally the ga70 1ggte is an exception to the rule)

front bumper changed as well as turn signals
have a look at the front bumper and turn signals between these two.. the turn signals on the purple 89 are shorter and have little black grills rather than the yellow one which has one grill that spreads right between the two




if you have any other questions on body diff's post em up and i'll answer them the best i can

:lol: yea yellow is cool :P

well ur in the US aye das... so usa cars from what i was told from 86-88 use the same moulding as our 87.. so you don't get the ugly grey old moulding lol... so have a look at the 87 moulding and that will probly be your moulding, if your car was white your moulding will be a greyish colour, blue = blue moulding and burgundy = burgundy.. lots of thought went into that statement :P

so USA cars... from 86-88 you all use the 87 moulding i posted above... don't change it to 89-92.. 87 moulding is the coolest LOL

oh and das... are your pics working for your car yet.. i noticed they went down a while ago
and i think urs is 86-88 if i remember correctly your lights are 86-88 with them funny rear marker lights hehe

firstly i am in the UK not usa lol,

Not sure about the pics thing, i noticed they dissapeared but the link i posted still works fine and the pics are still up there

The car was originally a dark red/burgandy colour but i am sure the mouldings were just plain, either grey or i think they were probably black

haha honestly i knew that... i was in a funny rambling mood last nite

ahhh good long as they're back up .. it seems that this forum isn't allowing me to link directly to the webshots site to show the pics on here that's why i thought it was down hehe

if ur car was burgundy, then your moulding was also burgundy
