Thumbs down for lucy for bad information. 1979 uses four individual lights where as 1987 through 1993 use the same one-piece assemblies that incorporate the high and low-beams together. The entire nose assembly of the cars are completely different.

NO, 79 takes 4 small ones and the 87 takes 2 large ones.. the only way is to swap the entire front clip, fenders, hood and all..
