There is also a headlight bezel variation. Like a newer mold versus an older mold type deal.
Standard E-code size, so I guess 190mm

The 78 chasis will be available if someone wants a rust free roof w/o sunroof... The passenger rear quarter panel might be in ok shape too.

I don't have one to measure on but it looks bigger than the US-spec 7"
Couldn't find a good head on pic of a US car

Thats right, mine are Euro spec 190mm (7.5"). Only US/Canada got the 7". You guys sure did have some interesting compliance regulations.

The 7.5" are certainmly getting very hard to find if you break one!

On a side note is there a way to still source the Euro square headlights?

Are you US or Canada?

My friend Dan is a member here and has a gt. I'll point him in the direction of this thread so you'll be able to add 1 more...

Kinda sad how many have been scrapped just by tb members. That's the way it goes though..
