The '74-'76 lack the deeper/smaller V notch since their quarter windows are fixed.

The '72-'73 torino seals and the '74-'76 torino seals appear to be the same exact seals and maybe all you have to do is cut a slit down in the '74-'76 seals to make them fit onto the '72-'73 torino's.
 
And maybe you can build up the V notch area of the '72-'73 torino seals with something like a sealant product that is safe to use on rubber seals, to use them on the '74-'76 torino's.

I used RTV to repair a torn 1/4 window seal on my old 72 Sportsroof, it held until the very end Broken Heart
 
Censored I wish I knew how hard to find & $$$ some of those parts are back then
 
now that I think about it, I may still have all that glass with the repaired 1/4 seal still on it Beer

they are fixed. when i was disassembling the car i looked at that area inside the quarter panel and thought about making the roll down, as i think joe was too, but just decided against it as i had more than enough things to do!
just like the posts about using t-tops from a t-bird into a torino... thank god that didn't get posted until i was far enough along, that i couldn't do it or i probably would have Confused

On the formals 72-73, when the rear window opens, does it roll down completely or just move back a couple inches like the 72-76 Thunderbirds?

On the 72 &73 formal tops they roll down some and then tip back. They do roll all the way out of sight into the quarter.

hello,
  has anyone recently heard from the gentlemen or received a pair of his seals?  I dont want to bother him if he's backlogged with inquires.
Of course I could use a pair too and am considering rebuilding mine with some type of silicone or  rubber spray.

Question#2:  cant recall if there is a gasket that goes under the trunk emblem flapper?  yes or no?

Comment#1:   my qtr windows in my 72 do not go all the way down, maybe 2" inches of the window is still viewable when rolled down.

NO GASKET UNDER FLIPPER.

YOU'LL NEED TO GET IN AND ADJUST THE BOTTOM STOPS FOR THE WINDOW.
