I picked this up last week end from His & Hers as I had beed waiting for a '72 Mustang to complete a lineup. Being $30-$40 car, there are some flaws but I am glad a '72 was finally made and this trim level to me is the most memorable of that year, until they make a convertible '72.
-As the Ertl '73's, they use a low-back seat with a square top and not the correct high-backs.
-The console is huge.
-The rear received the '73 Honeycomed treatment but they painted it blue.
-The motor is again some underscaled 302 looking-one (not as bad as their '70 Boss') but the sticker says 351- on an air cleaner that is not even close to a 71-73 one. (the engine from the S&H Torino looks more authentic than this one).
-The trunk is non-oppening eventhus this is an LE (not that there is nothing there to look at).
-There are some other like the shape of the tail lights, the '69 style engine-firewall brackets and the "dead" head lights
-Great stance and dead-on body proportions.
-Great graphics and Tampos.
-Good interior detail that they got mostly right with what they had to work with.
-Good looking Magnums (and proven correct by Scott S. on another site).
Here is some info I found on the 1:1-
Mustang celebrated the 1972 Olympics in Los Angeles with the Mustang Sprint. Sprints were white with blue rocker panel paint, hood stripes, and seat inserts and a USA shield on the rear quarter panel. All of the cars came with the standard "dog dish" hubcaps, but Magnum 500 wheels were an option. Ford made 800 Sprint fastbacks, and 50 convertibles were made for the Washington, D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival. It was recently learned that 6247 Sprint coupes were also offered. Ford also offered Sprint models of their smaller Mavericks and Pintos.
