MAybe a rear LSD, but not for sure.

It looks to be a very early 87, or it's had front markers and bumper changed out for 85/86 style. So it probably has a part-time 5spd with short gears, 3.7 diff.

yea, looks like a turbo coupe....not an RX. so no, not full-time 4WD, and probably not a rear LSD.

the lock switch would be where the sticker is on the center console, it looks like a d/r 5 label but I couldn't make out the second shifter on this crappy monitor

at any rate, for $400 I would snap it up whether it ran or not - but I am biased towards that body style

Based on the picture, I agree with this. It also is a very strong candidate for a rear LSD. For some reason, those coupes seem more likely to have had LSDs when equipped with turbo engines. The front air dam is almost a sure thing for an LSD car. good luck!

that should be a 3.7 dual range. the lo range would be the 1.1:1 low, instead of the 3.9 d/r which was a 1.592:1 reduction.

this would be part time 4wd, just like the 4 sp d/r and 5 spd d/r.
no center diff or lock.

I say go for it, and it does seem that those with the front air dam have an LSD.
If it doesn't well, you got a rare 5sp d/r with the 3.7 diff.
