For 1972, horsepower continued to decline, but the figures published
for 1972 were net ratings, compared to gross HP ratings used in 
earlier years, so the horsepower loss was less than it appeared.

A UAW strike stopped production of the 1972 from April 1972 until the
end of the production year. About 1100 unfinished cars still on the 
line were scrapped when the production year ended. All 1972 camaros
were produced at the Norwood plant.

Appearance changes included a coarser egg crate grille for the non
RS cars and some interior changes such as the addition of door panel 
map pockets. The rear spoiler Z28 emblem became a foil unit. 
Speedometers were now 130mph. 1972 would be the last of the big block 
Camaros.
