Yeah, the 1600 was used in DL models and GL5's. Alot of 1600cc single range models existed past 1980. I believe in 1983 they did away with the 1600cc and made everything 1800cc. But single range still existed in DL models.

OK but the big question is how many GLF-5's are there out there?

Check my gallery,there's one rotted away up at Charlie's place.

It's the "Coupe" or hardtop like a GLF.

Here it is:

Tail lights are different than my '82 GLF

1600 engine too.

Anyone need parts? Let me know ASAP as in NOW because it'll be crushed real soon.
