It has an opera window, curiously.

That's a new distinction.
Where did you get that information, 130?

Another anachronism, but this movie is supposed to be set in 1971.

Several other points were not covered in the link.

1) The parking lamps under headlamps changed size during the 60's but I can't recall the year.
2) An "Unleaded Fuel Only" sign was added to the rear around the gas filler opening for model year 1975.
3) Somewhere along the line in the '70's, the grilles were changed from chrome to gray painted. I believe that applied to the taillamp housings, too. (But possibly just for the cabs?)
4) During the late 60' or early '70s. the steering wheel was redesigned at least twice.
