I hope this helps you:

1972 Gran Torino Ford offered two suspension options, the heavy-duty and competition suspension. The heavy-duty suspension included heavy-duty springs and shocks, while the competition suspension included the heavy-duty springs and shocks, plus a larger front sway bar and a rear sway bar. This was the first year that a rear sway bar was offered in the Torino.

Most likely not original! Probably put in by someone who was pulling something (a small trailer, boat, ??). I once had a 65 Ford Fairlane wagon and someone put air bags in the rear to help for towing.

Does the car have any sort of hitch?

Not sure on the air bags but Ford did offer a towing package option for the Torino, this could have included air bags? Check out this site and read towards the bottom: grantorinosport.org/72torino.htm
