1972 Firebird Interiors
Firebirds have always been offered in two trim levels, the standard and Custom. The Custom interior was standard on Esprit and optional on Formula and Trans Am. The custom interior offered more luxurious amenities like an improved seat design and specific door panels with separate pull straps. There was also a holding strap on the passenger dashboard.

Standard Interior

The standard interior was a carryover from 1971 with all Morrokide vinyl seats. Color choices were reduced from 5 to 4. Blue was dropped and Sandalwoord was replaced by Ivory. When Ivory was ordered the dash, console (if specified) sail panels, and rear quarter panels were molded in black. The Jade seats were replaced by a darker green. The saddle and black seats and door panels were unchanged.

Custom Interior

The Custom Interior option in 1972 still featured Morrokide seats but inserts were change to perforated Roulet Morrokide instead of the knit vinyl of 1971. The perforated morrokide featured small holes that allowed the seat to breath. The customer interior design was carried over from 1971 with a few color changes. Sandalwood was dropped reducing color options to six. Jade was replaced with a darker green. Cloth inserts were still offered in Black with Beige replacing the Sandalwood. For '72 Pontiac called the cloth inserts Potomac cloth replacing the Pinehurst cloth of '71.
