1972 Chevelle RPO Production Numbers/MSRP

[ 1964 ] | [ 1965 ] | [ 1966 ] | [ 1967 ] | [ 1968 ] | [ 1969 ] | [ 1970 ] | [ 1971 ] | [ 1972 ]

Caveat: Option quantities/prices vary from resource to resource. These quantities (and prices in most cases) were taken from year-specific 'Accumulative Production/Final Model Year Reports' from Chevrolet and  'Options And Accessories When Installed By Chevrolet' price sheets and do not normally include quantities/prices from Vintage Vehicle Services unless otherwise noted.

Options, Quantity and Cost

It is important to note the items listed and the quantity represent the item individually when ordered as an option and not when they may have come as standard equipment or in a convenience or appearance group on certain models. All costs listed are 1971/72 dollars. Also note some options were priced differently dependent on other options ordered, model the option was ordered on, and depending on what GM literature you're reading. A second (or third) listing of pricing for any option is taken from GM shipping records along with the particular series/model car and date of the Chevelle.

Quantity numbers may or may not be correct but are the best available figures. Be sure to read the notations below the list for anomalies.

The prices next to the RPO code are MSRP as of December 1, 1971. See the items sheets from Chevrolet here for specifics. Any prices in parentheses are taken from invoices, window stickers, etc. and may vary by dealer. The Quantity column is a combined total of the RPO units produced and may consist of multiple items. For example, the total for bumper guards is a total of the RPO options ordered; El Camino and station wagons only received the front guards where all others received front and rear guards. There is no known breakdown of front vs. rear.

Line items with orange bar are items shown on some dealer new car records but not shown as options reported by GM.
