My bad, thought it was an '81, how can you tell? The one on the left has 4 holes drilled in it. Here are some better pics. Literally just make an offer and they're yours. Whatever you think is fair, or 70% of whatever you think is fair, or whatever. Plus shipping.

78-80 are stubby like that and are technically "A" bodies. 81-88 are bigger overall and are G bodies, but the 78-80 cars have way more in common mechanically with the 65-77 a bodies to they get lumped into g body stuff.

This is an 81 regal, but 81-83 look like this. externally 84-87 don't have the kickup on the top of the grille, different headlight bezels, and have the rectangle black/white sweep speedometer, and the taillights with the trim down the center lengthways.

The main difference between the '78-'80 & '81-87 is the exterior sheet metal with certain parts made to replace one that had to be updated to fit/match the refresh. There is a limited about of interchangeable parts between the '64-'67 1st gen, '68-'72 2nd gen, '73-'77 3rd gen with the '78-'88 4th gen A/G cars. Our generation was A's for '78-'81 then swapped to G to make way for incoming replacement FWD platform which became the new A body. If it wasn't for the attempt to convert the US to the metric system in the mid/late '70's & size reduction in the name of fuel economy our cars would of had more interchangeable parts. A little unkown fact was in early '82 model year paint info PPG listed the RWD's as A's & the FWD's as G's. Could it been a print error, missunderstood info exchange between GM & PPG, or GM decided to swap platform names late in the '82 pre-production as they were planning to end the RWD platform but it's a guessing game at this point.
