1972

     The ’72 model was pretty much the same as the previous two years. Standard features were the same, as well as options for color, engines, etc. Majority of the models had power steering and air conditioning, while less than half had the tilted steering wheel or power windows. Six and a half percent had the LT1 engine. 6% had a close ratio four speed manual transmission, while 7%  had the heavy duty. Zero to sixty for the V-8 engines include: LS5, 6.8 seconds; LT1, 6.9; and the base ZQ3 engine ran in 8.5 seconds. And, although the horsepower was less (1971 for the LT1 was 330 hp while ’72 was only 255), the performance was the same.
