1972 Dodge Coronet

Again in 1972, the Coronet was considered a base model. In 1971, all two-door Coronets became Chargers. It's the same for 1972— if you want a two-door Coronet, you buy the Charger. Charger coupes and two-door hardtops now span a 115-inch wheelbase, as against 118 for Coronet sedans and wagons. Sheet- metal differences distinguish the Charger and leave it looking quite a bit flashier and more sporting than the Coronet.

Interior and Exterior Paint Chips

  • 1972 Dodge Exterior Paint Codes.

    The first Paint Code identifies the roof or accent color. The second Paint Code identifies the body color. (For example, the combination W1-B5 on a Dodge would indicate the roof or accent area is in White and the body is finished in Bright Blue Metallic.) Paint code plates are located in the engine compartment on the left wheel housing, the fender side shield, or the radiator yoke.
