Okay, so the open-hitch end with red wheels first appears in 1984 (that year,
of course, was also the title of an exceptional novel about totalitarianism (I
had to google that word to see how to spell it correctly, although I'm quite
familiar with the concept) which is, unfortunately (considering some interpretations
of the state of affairs in the modern world) not read often enough or, perhaps,
not well-enough understood) and doesn't appear again until 1987. This leads
one (me, in this case) to wonder if the 1984 appearance could be in error.

This set is the 1984 set in question. There are two box versions that I found
and both unquestionably show the closed hitch. Ergo, the 1984 appearance of
the open hitch is in error and that error will now be corrected pending possible
objections. See photos (note the different configurations of the parts lists
on the set boxes - these are the two different set boxes).

By the way, after looking at all versions of this part with an open hitch,
I'd be willing to bet the first appearance in any set was 1987.

BTW, the BrickLink catalog photo appears to me to show the open hitch. If so,
that photo is also in error and should be replaced.
