The other world markets got the change in 81. In the US we got the front sheet metal change in 86. So those in between years 81-85 have old sheet metal for the US models and the other world markets had the new sheet metal and head light in 81.

Must have been a bit of a production hassle to have two different sheet metal front ends at the same time.
