    1972 Corona RT95 Help!!

    Hey everybody this is my first post on the JNC, although I've been reading and following this website for a while now, and I hope you guys can help me out!

    I'm considering buying a 1972 Corona (RT95), but my long, hard searches on the internet have really come up with not much success :? every time I search for the year or the model number I only find info on the 4 dr or the wagon, which doesn't really help since the one I'm interested in is the 2 dr hardtop edition. Also I was wondering if you guys knew if some interior parts, specifically the dash and seats, on the 2 dr were interchangeable? As well, if the engine (18RC) were to blow on me, what swaps would you guys recommend?

    Any information or pictures are greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the forum. I am a proud owner of a 72 RT95 Coupe and i can attest to your struggles. It is a ridiculously difficult car to find. I recently bought another one but i stripped its quarter panels to put on my first one. :?

    Heres an old picture of my first car:

    And this is the one i just bought:


    The 18RC in mine blew up a while ago and i'm currently in the process of a 20R swap

    The rt95 dash and front seats will swap with the wagon and 4 door.
    Finding a uncraked dashpad will be tough so deal with the cracks or do a repair or cover.

    The grills will swap from model to model but are specific to each with a slightly different design and grill emblem.

    Then there is the early rt83 version which is differnet in the nose.

    A 20R with twin carbs and a 5 speed would be a nice combo.
    Then theres the 18RG for those with the love of such.
