The base steering wheel for both the Chevelle and Malibu series. Steering wheels were no longer color coded with the interior but instead only came in black and have a Chevrolet script on the right of the horizontal horn bar just as they did in 1971.

When optioned with RPO Z15, the steering wheel sported an SS emblem in place of the Chevrolet script.

The Malibu sport coupe and convertible door panels continued in the theme of the 1970 and 1971 model years and carried a MALIBU emblem.

12/02/2010
When equipped with RPO Z15 SS Equipment option, the MALIBU emblem gave way to the SS emblem as it did in 1971 but only on the sport coupe and convertible.

Since the Malibu sedan and the pickup still used the vent window, no emblems appeared on the door panel as they would interfere with the vent window regulator.

The Monte Carlo interior was more upscale than the Malibu with color coordinated carpeting along the bottom of the door.
