looks almost like something of a Toyota FJ-40, but the star i dont recognise.


Edit: Looks a bit more narrow at that.

Kinda hard to figure out what car it's from because there's so many with the round headlights, but is there any chance that the car is Russian?

Because it looks familiar...I just can't remember what car.

well as far as i can tell this is one of two. it looks like it's for the drivers side because there's a lip as well the lights were ajusted as if pointing that way. there's no serial numbers or indications of any sort. so it's really a mystery. the only serial number i could find was the one on the back of the light frame. it was something like CDCIAF-16100-A . but that doesn't seem to be helping.

Lincoln?

It's familiar cause it looks like Lincoln star but I don't recall one of Lincolns with headlights like this. The period seems like 60's: during 50's the headlights were either single or stacked and anything younger had covers.
Hope didn't put you on the wrong track...

Oh, I didn't notice those lol, it looked pretty small...if it's that big then it's most likely an American car...

Well, I looked over some Lincoln pics and didn't find it but going through Mercury (the same folder) found this so I wouldn't be surprised if some econoline owner recognized your grille.

No idea. Im sending the pics to my grandpa. He spent 10yrs in Europe (Turkey, Italy...), he has a very good memory for details of different cars.
