/\ the only change to the dash for 1978 was that the radio opening was enlarged for the newer delco radios.
if you compare he radio face plates for 70-77 & 78-81 that should assist in seeing the difference.
My car as I got it in 1995 had a later dash - so I had the opposite scenario.

if contemplating a radio conversion, why not just but an aftermarket one?

‘snake eater’ posted a video a while ago of the aftermarket radio he got in one of his T/A’s - it was the aftermarket blue tooth one - and he didn’t even realize it!
