Looks like a RS latch on a Non-RS Car


But its not....Just like Cristal stated...people think all these cars are the same. That is a 1972 standard front end hood latch.

The hood release on my 72 comes out below the bumper just to driver side of center.


That's not correct for a 72. You have a 70-71 hood latch on that 72.

This is what NPD says about the reproductions they sell.

1970-1973 CAMARO EXC RALLY SPORT

1970, 1971 AND 1973 MODELS USED GM P/N 3973918,
1972 HAD A UNIQUE CATCH, P/N 3994760, WHICH IS NOT BEING
REPRODUCED AT THIS TIME, BUT PART WILL FIT / FUNCTION **

Agree, don’t see why a 70-71 latch wouldn’t work on a 72
