Any other year fit 97 legacy L headlight w/ turn signal built in?

Does anyone know if the separate headlight and turn signal would fit and work instead, or if any other year or model's headlight assembly could fit and work?

Lots of them in the yards in Colorado.

YES one piece and two piece should be swappable, I was having a conversation with my roomie/mechanic about that he said that its just the housing that differs. wire sockets and mount points are the same so you can swap them around.
my goal is to fit up impreza head lights from around 98-99 and use the turn signal from the two piece. I like glass headlights! mmmm fabrication!

I'll head back to the yard tomorrow, and let you know how it turns out. Good luck with your project.

Yes, the do fit. The 2 piece i believe was 1995 and may be 96

Search for 95 or 96 Legacy (trim level doesn't matter) and you will get listings for the one piece.
Junkyards are good for low prices, but you may need to clean the lens because they all fade and yellow with age.

Thanks for the advice! Good thing for this forum - every parts store I contacted said the two separate parts wouldn't fit... but as you all said, they did! Used parts from a 1998 Legacy Outback. Had to cut the wires and use the connectors from my vehicle, but other than that: simple!
