Not sure what information you are looking for.

Many things apply to both 2 door and 4 door models.

For 1972, there were minor style changes to the Cutlass,but basically the same as the 1971.

The primary changes to the 1972 Cutlass were the front grilles and the tail lights.


The link below has a wealth of information covering mostmodels 1949-2004.

4 doors just aren't as popular, but as other mentioned, a lot is the same. Is there something in particular you are trying to find out?

That was helpful so the 72 is just like the 71 so if I'm looking for a owners manual and stuff that's how if find find it? Thanks I'm new at this, I'm now working to clean the pcv vavle and the air filter. The air filter got soaked with oil Idk if it's a blown head gasket I think I just need to clean the pcv vavle and but a new filter from the info I found so far...what do you think...

You definitely need to find out what is causing the leak first. I just uploaded this PDF(about 4MB) that might help as well.

Ok so we have a project car. The oil in the air cleaner could be the PCV being stuck? I would head the direction you already are.Byreplacing the PCV and using carb cleaner to cleanup everything! It also could be causedby excessive blowby or rings not sealing. A leak down test would be in the cards.


Also looks like you need a new outside rearview mirror
