Crazy 1JZ modified Carina TA60 in Pakistan – Carina Sightings

I happened to stumble across a TikTok video with a crazy modified Carina TA60, but I couldn’t find out who created it. That’s the issue with TikTok: you don’t really follow people, you just scroll random stuff that interests you. Today I finally found two videos of this crazy build on Youtube!

The company in question is Sbc Modifier in Pakistan. They do crazy builds like crafting a Rolls Royce bodywork on top of a Toyota Corona, a Mustang with scissor doors on top of a Kia Spectre and a Dodge Challenger on top of a Datsun Sunny B210.

Toyota Corolla Levin AE92 bumper on Toyota Carina A6

I was always wondering about the modern bumpers featuring several Carina’s I saw in the past, just like this one posted by bippu4life:
TS-Factory TA63
The TS-Factory Toyota Carina TA63

At first I thought it was an aftermarket bumper based upon the kouki Corolla Levin AE86. But in the picture it states that it is an AE92 bumper. Well, I just came across this ad on selling an Corolla Levin AE92 bumper for an Carina AA63:

Toyota Corolla Levin AE92 bumper

I know it must be a Levin bumper because the license plate fits on the grille itself an the Trueno bumper has its emblem over there. And the shape tells me it is a Zenki Levin bumper. It’s a pity both the Levin and Trueno AE92 were never delivered in Europe. The width of the Carina A6 is 1650mm (all models) while the Corolla E9 is 1655mm (all models). That means every E9 bumper will fit, so I’m not limited to the Levin and Trueno bumpers. :)

I don’t really like the normal Corolla E9, but I do like the bumper of the European variant of the JDM Sprinter E9:
Toyota Corolla E9 Liftback (toyota sprinter E9 in Japan)
European Toyota Corolla E9 Liftback (Toyota Sprinter E9 in Japan)

Now I need to find out what GX70 bumper is used on the rear. ;)
