Corvette

The 1972 Corvette did lose some power due to emission restrictions and octane ratings, but the low numbers are mainly due to the SAE standard of rating horsepower.

Styling was essentially unchanged from the previous year. The anti-theft alarm system was now standard, and the center console was redesigned with fiber optic warning lights being standard.
