There's been discussion of 72 vs 73 hoods before.  Well, I now have a 72 Montego hood in my possession, so I figured I'd show some pics of the differences in the latch area.  Check out the below pics.  '72 hood is on the left (brown).  '73 hood is on the right (gold).

No, they are identical when it comes to fitment, dimensions, etc.
