Hi, I would like to buy a HJ61, but i'm a little confused about 2 things.
On the grille is "diesel" instead of "turbo" and the turbo consists of 1 element while I see 2 elements on other turbo's.

Could this be a "special" type or aftermarket build?
They installed an intercooler, maybe that's the reason?

Type: HJ61
Year: 1988

Thanks!
Steve

Hum, strange. Intercooler is installed (aftermarket) that explains idd why there is a pipe missing. Maybe the headlights where just in the "transition" fase? (from round to square) I see quite a few '88 with round headlights, but i'm not sure if that is correct.

What prove states that it is a 88 ?
Looks like a original Hj61 with round lights and aftermarket intercooler on which they changed the grill after a small crash. The body beneath the grill does not look crumble free either.
Frame number will tell the truth.

that is what I thought. An accident after which a grill with round lights is placed - from a normal diesel

Grill has nothing to do with the lights.
There are turbo badged grills in that same shape like it has now.
You can't change lights without changing fenders and bezel and radiator mount.
If you look in the corner were the fender meets the firewall , there is still original caulking.
