I see, the oil tank gives it away quickly. Engine swap perhaps?

No, don't think so. Look at the oil filter. It's mounted there since '82 models. A '79 had it's generator in that place.
Perhaps the ignition went bad and they put points in it.

Didn't they go to an alternator in 84 ?

Those ones all have the 13 digit vins and it's hard got people tpo work out exatly what year they have.
But it has the ugly exhaust dictated by the 79 brake setup.
