I bought a 1978 brochure off of Ebay showing most of the changes for the 78 models. I'm sure this was just for consumers and didn't list all the intricate changes.

You can see one of the biggest changes right on the front cover on that maxi van. Check out the location of the side doors. They are moved forward and there's the infamous notch in the aft door. Also, and this applies to shorties too, is that there is a real b-pillar now as opposed to the fore side door butting right up to the front door as on earlier models.
