My build date is 2/85 and front seats look like '84 and earlier with no arm rest. Is this common, uncommon, PO mod?

Thx

If a GL, then a 2/85 van should have the armrest seats,

Arm rests are listed as not available on the base model.

The 85 Wolfsburg edition had armrests, I have them in my 83 van.
