I think you might be seeing 72 dashes that have been transplanted into earlier cars. I bought a dash out of a 72 Monte Carlo last year that had the warning light, but I replaced the woodgrain dash facia with one from an earlier car and covered up the opening. I also stripped the woodgrain and painted the facia satin black before installing it.
