    1972 Engine Availability
    NOTE: This year, General Motors changed the way horsepower was measured. HP was now measured with net ratings (full accessories and exhaust included), as opposed to gross HP (engine power without acc. and exhaust hooked up). This had the effect of making it look as though horsepower had dropped significantly, even though it really hadn't changed nearly as much. Generalluy, net HP ratings are 20-30% less than gross HP ratings.
