Curious what the difference is between the models?  It looks like there were 79 brats with dual headlights and some with four.....is that the only difference between these models.  Did one come later in the year....which is more desirable?   thx!

Dual means it was a DL and the Quads were the GL which had more features on it like the Tach, Clock, Am and FM radio, etc....

My 78 brat has quads but no tach. Was the tach new for 79?

I think that the GL also has a bit of Chrome around the wheel wells, too.
