This is correct 68 one year, 69 one year, 70-72 the same. Take a look in the "Best of 3rd gen" I started a thread there that will help you know what is correct for your car

It's interesting how many subtle changes you will find between the different years when you try to mix and match parts. I have a couple I stumbled across recently:

The '71 we are working on uses tack welded-on tabs below the back glass to attach the lower reveal molding to, but our '72 parts car has "bulges" for a lack of a better word, or I guess you could call them raised areas formed in the body to attach the reveal molding.

I tried to use the '72 reveal molding on the '71, but that didn't work, the screw holes don't line up, go figure, the '72 reveal molding is not a match. Seems they wouldn't want to change their tooling for such subtle changes.

Another thing I found was the drip rail piece that screws to the A-pillar has a different hole pattern from '71 to '72, at least our two cars do.
