Looking around in the junkyard for a decent doghouse cover to replace the one in my 83 (vinyl layer is peeling, might just recover), and I'm having a hard time visually telling the difference. Anyone know which years changed and have pics of what each variation looked like? 71-95 are what I'm specifically referring to.

I've heard that 1982 and newer are larger than the 71-81 ones. This is due to the release of the 454 engine. Not sure if there are other variations.

I put one from an '89 in my '78. They look and fit exactly the same.
