I think the gasser's front crossmember is slightly larger, but take some pics of their front, and compare it to yours.
I'm pretty sure the front crossmember (radiator support shroud... whatever the tin behind the bumper is called...) on the 82 is flat, and on the later years, they thinned it and put a large droop in there to give clearance to the fan.
I can take a pic of the 82 I have in my shop and compare it to my 85 for you.
the 85 CERTAINLY has a larger fan than my 82... around 16 inches...
