1979 Was the final year for this body style, although there were a few cosmetic changes for this model year . The 1979 models received a bolder front grille in a large 4×4 grid pattern with a new spoiler located below the front bumper. The clear fender tip parking lamps were positioned directly ahead of amber marker lenses. The full width tail lamps were replaced with large rectangular tail lights located on either side of a single backup lamp. Emissions concerns a quest for greater fuel economy lead to a redesign in 1980.
