It also has US big bumpers. All EURO cars have tiny little bumpers. The EURO cars also DO NOT have side markers. It also looks like it has sealed beam headlights, that is a US thing to. There is also not shadowline trim.

Actually if you look closer, they are the thin
Euro bumpers. They wrap around and end at the
wheel arches, and the front has the integral
plastic Euro license plate mounting panel that
is on all the Euro front bumpers. The side markers
and sealed beams may have been added when the car
was "Federalized" when it was brought to the US.
I don't think the Shadowline trim was available
on this early of a car, but regardless it's still
not an M or M Technic car. Ghetto all the way :-)
