The bird faces different directions from year to year.

The hood decals changed styles in 79 and faced a different direction.
What year is your car, you can measure your sway bar diameter which should give it away unless someone changed them already to larger ones.

I take it you dont have a build sheet?

This may be of interest. The rear sway bar increased in diameter from 5/8" to 3/4".

It's nice to have but I dont think it adds any real $$ value.
The real value is you can see how your car was originally built at the factory.

you can also tell if your car is a WS6 by looking at the numbers on top of the steering box.
