Yep - it has the Hurst Dazzler wheels on it - not a factory option - a dealer option

1972 Mustang Fastback with Sprint Decor Package Promotional Photo




Chrome Magnum 500 wheels, RWL tires and Stripes were still a part of the 1972 Mustang but the big engines, like the Boss 351 and 429 Cobra Jet were gone.

BTW - 1972 was the last year for the Magnum 500 wheel option for the Mustang

The Devils in the details . . .

The 1970 Challenger T/A came standard with hubcaps and trim rings. Rally wheels were an option, though they were standard on the 'Cuda AAR. Many don't like the look of the trims and remove them.




Should look like this:

The most expensive 1970 Charger R/T sold - about $6,300. I think (???) the only options it doesn't have are Power Windows and the trunk mounted luggage rack. The Hemi and the Powered Sunroof added $1109 to the MSRP of the Charger R/T

Did you know . . .

"The more things change . . . the more they stay the same." In 1964, to avoid the GM edict that prevented large engines in midsized cars, the GTO was an option package for the LeMans. Beginning in 1965, the popularity of the GTO, made it a seperate model.

Due to the end of the Muscle Car Era, the last "real" GTO - the 1973 model once again resorted back to an option package for the LeMans Sport





Only 4096 GTOs were sold in 1973. Many attribute this to two factors; the bumpers looked "clunky" and the SD 455 was cancelled. So the only two engines for the 1973 GTO were the standard 400 and the optional 455.




To make matters worse Pontiac created a brand new model, the Grand Am that was a direct competitor to the GTO. The promble was, by 1973, the moniker "GTO" was a a red flag to the insurance companies. The Grand Am had the same engine options as the GTO, but no stigma about the name. And as you can see, the front bumper treatment was much better than the GTO.




Years later (1977) Pontiac would once again produce a "GTO like" car - the 1977 Can Am:
