Split front bumper on early 70's models?

I'm trying to learn about the 71, which I'll have some day, and why I'm seeing some with a split and some without. It's not just the 71 I'm seeing but I am not sure what the split actually means, if anything.

I figured this would be the best place to learn/ask the question.

Anyone know?

The 70-73 2nd gens with the split bumper are Rally Sport models.

Check this out. You'll find it educational: http://www.nastyz28.com/faq/2gcdiff.html
