    Yes.

    Depending on the month of the '72, there may be issues with different steering columns. The later '72's ie 73 modle year, would have the ignition key on the column, if this matters.

    Good luck!

    the places the tub mounts to the frame are identical.

    There are some differences in the firewall tho that you will need to address....and yes, there are some switch/gauge/steering differences too, but nothing that can't be addressed.
